Around March, Jennifer and wanted to do puzzles together, so we finished a 500 piece and then bought a 1,000 piece puzzle. With 3 days left in the dorms, we decided to start the 1,000 piece puzzle because that's a super smart decision that college students make. We got extremely close to finishing, but at 1:45am and with only 6 hours left before leaving for the airport, I had to call it quits and go to bed. This was the product after putting in about 5-6 hours of work.
Back in the ATL
And...... we're back (in the Twin Cities)!
This may sound a bit weird, but I have read multiple great reviews about United Noodles, an Asian supermarket in a more industrial district in Minneapolis. I have been wanting to go since before coming to Macalester, but because of its location it's difficult to get it via public transportation. Jennifer and I decided to go on Memorial Day because we had nothing better to do and wanted to check another item off the bucket list. The place exceeded my expectations; it carried everything that I can ever imagine (they have my Hong Kong brand ramen and herbal teas!) and more. The shopping experience was great due to short lines and few people.
As a cultural exchange experience, we decided to buy 4 things from our childhood to share: one drink, 1 food eaten hot, and 2 snacks.I bought my items from United Noodles, and then we made a stopover nearby on Lake Street so that Jennifer could choose her 4 items. I filmed our exchange of food, so hopefully, I will have time to upload it soon to the blog.
