Back in the USA! After a week in Canada I am back. I had to get out there all the news coverage of Will and Kate's impending visit made me nauseous.
I had a few things to do on my itinerary while in Detroit - 1. Tigers game, 2. MGM Casino, 3. Motown Museum. Detroit has always had a bad reputation for being an unsafe city, which might explain walking to the stadium in downtown at 5:45 on a Wednesday and there is hardly anyone else walking around, apart from those who are also going to the stadium. A few blocks from the hotel after the game some woman was screaming at the top of her lungs "Stop him, Stop him" as some guy darted by with her bag. Another guy on the street commented to me as I approached where the guy had run past "Don't she know not to be walking around at night, this city dangerous, just yesterday someone was shot at the bus station". Great I thought, that's how I got to get out of here. When I got back to the hotel I figured to play it safe and stay in for the rest of the night and forgo walking the 5 blocks to the casino as well as skipping the Motown museum the next day and just head out to Ohio.
