hello from minneapolis! we're back in the states for 2 days, in the midst of a whirlwind canadian tour. we finally hit cold weather in saskatoon, saskatchewan, and it has stuck with us since. thank god oscar (www.nakatomiplaza.com) loaned me his winter coat! we hit a leap day (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year) which was cool. um... what else.... my beard is getting pretty full. i don't have pictures yet, but i will. we're all sort of exhausted from a rough border crossing; apparently a rock'n'roll bus crossing into the states at 5am sends up some red flags with the night patrol! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Border_Patrol wish us luck with the rest!
