Downtown New Ulm, Minnesota, where we spent a layover day today, is clean and neat as a pin. Unusually for a small midwestern town, the main street, actually Minnesota Street, is thriving. Near the downtown is a 45-foot-tall glockenspiel, similar to those found in Germany. At noon, the bells ring, a sliding door opens, and a group of mechanical people representing local history emerge and perform. I've included some short video clips to give you an idea of how it works.
