This trip we drove the slow route along Highway 14 to Minnesota. The farm land is lush green with soybeans and corn. I like the spiffy look of the red barns with metal roofs. They are a nice contrast with the color of the fields. The highway speed limits are lower than on I94 and there are plenty of towns to slow down for, but that was part of the charm of this route.
We listened to a favorite flamenco CD, with a song sung by cantaor* Carmen Linares. Then we heard the music of Cris Plata, a talented tejano who lives in Madison. He sings protest songs about the treatment of farm workers, which seemed appropriate for our journey.
*a cantaor is a flamenco singer
