80. Detroit 2 – Pics From Above. And others.

I’ve written about Detroit before but I thought I’d share with you a few pics I took.

My Mum and my Sister just come over for a visit and so we had a nose around the city. We decided to take a tour of the Renascence Center.  On the tour they tell you all the interesting facts about the building. But of course the bit everyone wants to do is go to the observation deck on the 72nd floor.

The glass elevator. just like willy wonka. thats Canada in the distance.

On a good day you can see 30 miles in any direction from the 72nd floor, you can even see the Pontiac Silverdome.

And finally as I have nowhere else to put this pic. I was at my favorite breakfast haunt, Andarys in Clinton Township and I spotted a hidden face on the menu!

    My sister works in that favorite building of yours. And I’m afraid I have to be a bit of a pedant and correct you. It was Lili Tomlin in the oversized chair. She does look a bit like Rita Rudner, but is quite a bit earlier.
