Spring Break – day four // 03.07.2017

A Tuesday that would usually find us in class and around Harding found us instead at the Mall of America.

Lunch, shopping and arcade games — all on the agenda. My familiarity with the small malls of Arkansas didn’t prepare me for the behemoth of this Minnesota staple. For four of us, we only made it to the second floor to visit the food court, and that’s with about six hours spent in the mall.

Six hours. Only one floor. Yeah, it’s huge.

The other three made it up to the third and fourth floors where they spent some time in the arcade. We’re considering returning so that we get a glimpse of the what the rest of the mall looks like.

Today in seven photos:

We spent the rest of the afternoon and night at home. For me at least, the Mall of America was a first, and it didn’t disappoint.

Tomorrow we head to Duluth where the high is 25 degrees with high winds. Wish us luck.
