Motss.con XIX: At the Mall of America

On friday, some of at the motss.con traversed by light rail or car to the Mall of America for a dose of schlock. And we got it. I'm not much of a consumer and don't particularly like shopping so rarely go to Malls (unless one considers places such as amazon.com as a Mall) and can't take them very seriously. This one was quite the show and well worth the trip. rsc is considerably less enthusiastic!

No-one rode on the roller coaster, a few souvenirs were bought, we didn't go to underwaterland (or whatever it was called). We had a nice lunch at a Minnesota-style restaurant which wasn't quite up to the standard of La Belle Vie of the previous night. I had a Walleye sandwich.

and another bird
