Day 38: Detroit

We ventured out into Detroit today and discovered that there's really not much to see. We boarded the "People Mover" which is an elevated rail system used not only for commuters but also by tourists like us to see the city. The whole trip takes about 20 minutes and costs 50 cents per person. You can read between the lines...


Once we got to the south end, near the financial district we were able to see some larger buildings and, of course, immediately across the river, Windsor, Ontario, Canada.





The People Mover quickly went back northward through some dingier areas until we were back near our hotel. Here's a nice picture of the Central United Methodist Church.
Finally, just as we came full circle, we arrived in the area of Ford Field and Comerica Park.



We were slated to take mini tours of each but due to a high school graduation in the case of the former, and misinformation in the case of the latter we could not tour. We might try again tomorrow.



We're now off to dinner at the Coach Insignia restaurant located in the Renaissance Center. Stay tuned as tomorrow is our last full day in the U.S.
