Detroit Skyline, and icy Detroit river: Viewed from Windsor, Canada on a cold February afternoon

I was in the automotive capital Detroit, Michigan, USA last weekend. There was Valentine’s day too, and one might wonder what I was doing in Detroit, a city infamous for intolerance, crime, racial segregation and an overall decay since the inevitable collapse of the automobile sector. I don’t know the extent to which any of that is true.

Well I had a lovely time, spending the gloomy snowy weekend eating, drinking, sleeping and getting pampered. Here are some not-so-glamorous pictures of the city.

I haven’t been posting for a long time for a number of reasons but I assure you that I’m well and back in action. I received several emails and comments asking me if everything was okay – yes it is! Thanks for checking in! I’ll be checking out my reader soon. 🙂
