somali refugees

Over the past 25 years 84,000 Somali refugees have come to America. I did not know this until I went to the Land of 10,000 Lakes last weekend for my niece's college graduation, but 40% of them live in Minnesota.

I spent two nights in Faribault - apparently a popular destination for lots of these Somali families. It was quite something to see the diversity of this small, midwestern town.

I made this photo at the carnival that was in town. Fours sisters.
