We had to get to the Wisconsin border for Monday night, but as we crossed through town, we coordinated with our friend Brianna (Bri for short) to meet at the Mall of America. Funny, we considered going on the weekend, but then we realized it wasn't just -our- day off, Saturday is also the day that pretty much everyone goes to any mall, let alone the Mall of America. So we opted for Monday since we could. Good choice.
I promised my mom that I would take and share pictures (she loves malls)
Despite the four-story mall's size and interest, it was surprisingly not labyrinth-like. It wasn't confusing to navigate, and we didn't get lost (apart from having a local friend show us around). It's rather simply laid out, and not too intimidating. Perhaps the nicest aspect of the Mall of America is the quality of stores. The stores there are pretty much the same brands you'll find at any mall (along with a couple unique stores), but they seem to be of the highest quality of the franchise. There's not just a Lego store, there's a Lego complex displaying monstrous 25-foot Lego sculptures. There's not just a technology store, there's a Microsoft store that allows you to play on two XBox Kinects (game console where you use your body as the controller) and four Microsoft Surfaces (a full-sized table that is a touch-screen computer). There's not just an Orange Julius, there's a.... okay... I guess the Orange Julius is the same. But anyway... you get the point.
I'll try to be a little more specific with the picture titles and captions this time. Unless it gets too tedious. Otherwise, just enjoy :)
