The museum was interesting because they had exhibits on a couple of cool items. The Latino Dia De Los Muertos which is celebrated around the time of Halloween. The Becks invited me to decorate sugar skulls in honor of this day
They also had an exhibit of the resettlement of Somali refugees in the US. Our country is funny we give you barely enough help in so many ways and when you try to figure out how to use other resources at hand then they aren't sure that you qualify or there is a one month backlog etc. I'm thinking about health-care and how the passage of this bill will not screw up care in the USA (that's sarcasm if it wasn't quite obvious enough)
The stories of these folks being resettled were haunting because you don't realize how good we have it in our country. It is such a privilege to live here and it is not fully grasped by us most of the time.
I enjoyed the Plains Art Museum and walked around Fargo just to see what this place was all about. It was a big town. One that recalls an earlier time in our country, mainly architecturally.
