First Impressions of Detroit
Before leaving on this trip people would ask “Why?” when I said I was going to Detroit. My response “Why Not?”. I have heard about the crime, and of course the ruins—-but I knew there would be a rare slice of Americana to be found.
So far, I think I am right. There is good food (OMG the hummus I had today in Dearborn rocked my socks), world class museums, and interesting architecture (even if abandoned).
It is interesting and sad to see burnt out houses—-or really run down once beautiful houses all around town—I can’t wait to see more tomorrow.
