The city of Detroit has left me in awe at its combination of beauty and absolute desolation.
Saw The Raconteurs at the Masonic Temple in what was the most fun concert I’ve ever been to. Saw the glitz and glamor of downtown Detroit and the dystopian hellscape that would have made Ayn Rand wet with delight. We got chased out of the Packard plant by security company hired by people who are claiming to rehabilitate the facility, despite no noticeable progress made.
We ate delicious food, drank amazing coffee, and had a few beers. We drove the 300, walked nearly 15 miles, and rode the delightfully shit People Mover. We finished the trip at the Henry Ford Museum.
I will be back someday and I hope Detroit can get its shit together.
