Minnesota air feels so much better to me. I love walking up the ramp from the plane to the terminal and breathing in the air that leaks in from outside; I breathe it so much more easily. It just feels good. I'm not sure if it's the temperature, the climate, or what. Makes me wonder if it will always be like this. Will my affinity for MN air change eventually, given enough time away from this climate? If so, how much time would such a change take? I haven't been back to MN more than once or twice a year since I've lived in Washington state -- almost 5 years now.
On a downside, MN buildings tend to be far too heavily climate controlled. The air in this airport is overly dry and warm and ... recycled. Or something. Not nearly so pleasant.
