As many of you know (if you don’t, you need to follow me on Twitter), I’m heading to one of the few major American cities I’ve yet to visit, Detroit, this evening.
Whenever I think of Detroit, I think of this fabulous photo-journal entitled “The Ruins of Detroit.” It’s strikingly sad – such wonderful, gorgeous buildings in such disrepair, places where some incredibly historic things occurred – where manufacturing really took off.
For examples, this the factory where the model T – not to mention, specialized manufacturing – first took place.
I’ll be posting my feeling on this city on this blog later.
As for Toronto, I’ve been there before, for a conference my mom attended when I was in high school. My most vivid memory of that trip is the protesters outside the conference, protesting against the overuse of drugs in Psychiatry, the field my mom works in. My mom often agrees.
Until then, you can keep up with me on Twitter.
