I hope that wherever you are there have been some beautiful fall or spring days. I love the temperatures, the colors and pumpkin everything.
I have still been traveling and ended up spending a couple of weeks in Detroit.
I wasn't working downtown but a ways out from the airport. I stayed at a couple if different hotels by the airport. They were so nice and were convenient to resturants and a convenience store.
It was easy to get around too. The suburbs are all laid out in a grid so it was easy to get back to my hotel and to find different things.
I was lucky enough to meet up with some friends in the area. My friend Tina I had met 5 years ago when we were both in Fresno, CA working on a CVS conversion. Tina was anxious for me to explore Detriot. Detroiters love their city!
It was great having a tour guide in Detroit because I don't think that I would have gotten to see as much of the city by myself.
I got stuck in Detroit over the weekend due to the fire in Chicago so I was able to explore some more.
This museum was full of wonderful exhibits and admission was free. I learned a lot of things about Detroit.
This was just an amazing place. I am so glad that I had the chance to visit even though I was really blue about being stuck over the weekend. I would not have gotten home until Saturday and would have had to leave Sunday morning to fly to Ohio. It was better to just stay in Detroit and drive the 3 hours on Sunday to my next stop.
I also stopped here..
They have beautiful things.
After my sightseeing in Detroit, I headed over to Tina's best friends home. They were celebrating the 60th birthday of Her friends Father. Tina had spent the last 3 days helping get the house and yard set up for 100 people. It was so kind to be invited and everyone was so welcoming.
It seemed like I was with family.
So, Detroit also has wonderful food but I am going to do another post about that.
What else can I say about this wonderful city? It is full of people who love their city, the history, their teams, their food. I worked with the nicest people here.
I think I can sum it up by saying Detroit, I love you!
Thanks for traveling with me!
