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. that’s Canada in the distance.
we all know how big these things are! this is what it looks like from floor 72
normally you can only get up here to go to this restaurant …..
……a restaurant I’d never be able to afford to eat in!
From the Laugh-in TV show the oversized chair Rita Ratner sat in,
On a good day you can see 30 miles in any direction from the 72nd floor, you can even see the Pontiac Silverdome.
one of my favorite Detroit Buildings
Cobo, Joe Louis Arena
Did you know there were tennis courts on the roof of the Milender Center?
I bumped into this guy in the GM show room!
After the Ren Cen we took the people mover for a tour. well worth 75 cents
Detroit has some wonderful buildings.
And some wonderful artwork.
My sister in Greektown, three seconds after she was checking to see if the statue is anatomically correct.
OK this isn’t Detroit, it’s the christmas lights at partridge creek.
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!
