Dairy Princess in Butter
This is really hard to explain, but true. All of the people who run for Dairy Princess get their heads carved in real butter. I'm not making this up! The butter head with the crown is the winner. Saudi has kings and princes, but we have butter heads of Dairy Princesses.
And now for something completely different!
I've been contacted by people from all over the world who have read my blog and I'm now up to 8700 hits. So I'm taking a momentary break from Saudi Arabia blog entries, to give you some photos from where I live.
There is nothing
more Minnesotan than the Minnesota State Fair, which takes place at the end of August. Here are some photos that my daughter took while we were there.
These photos are the essence of being Minnesotan. In fact, these could be used in an anthropology class at the University of Minnesota to help explain the psyche of Minnesotans. What they stand for, what they eat, what's important.
And please note: in NONE of the photos will you see snow (well, maybe snow cones, but that's different).
I hope you enjoy this Minnesota commercial break from our regularly scheduled Saudi program.
