Nano-Vacation (Nanocation?)

When you live in Minnesota, you gotta find little ways of escaping from winter once in a while. Last year, I posted about the Como Park Conservatory. This week, my dad and I went to the Walker Sculpture Garden’s Cowles Conservatory.

It’s warm and humid, and smells like nature. Just what you need when every day feels like the 9th circle of Dante’s Inferno. You know, the last circle of Hell, which is situated on a frozen lake, and where Judas is embedded neck-deep in ice, and his back is being clawed to shreds by Satan himself (props to my high school Humanities teacher, Mr. Dart!). Anyway, it’s nice to go here when it’s cold outside. 🙂

Yeah, this is a fish made out of glass. What?

Remember those green things that grow out of the ground? They still exist!

The glass walls of the conservatory were talking about the vast difference in temperature on either side of them. Poor things were working hard.

But, green things!

Then we had some really yummy dinner with my aunt, and saw a play based on Moliere’s “The Misanthrope.” Fun night out with the Pops!

  1. I noticed you mentioning Como Park Conservatory. And discovered the warm and happy time you had with your Father. Both places you mentioned are perfect for beating out the frigid subzero temperatures.
