Where I stayed
Lift-off from the Minneapolis International Airport
That is what greeted me as I entered the gate area, where everyone was preparing for the first non-stop flight to Paris on Northwest Airlines. I admired the ice replica, and noticed that they had every facet and detail chiseled into the ice perfectly. Northwest airlines went all out for this one. All the news channel were there to cover the ribbon cutting ceremony and inauguration party. I went over to a table that was adorned with lots of French flair and decorations, and a hostess offered me a glass of champagne. It was so good! I then made my way over to another table full of Parisian o'dourves and appetizers. In between eating and people watching, I looked up and noticed Carl Eller from the Minnesota Vikings walking around in a purple suit and looking like he had consumed one to many glasses of wine. Funny thing is, I later found out when I got back to the States, that Carl Eller had got stopped by the police on the way back from the inauguration party and was taken downtown. Noone still knows why he was there in the first place. LOL!!!
