it looks so peaceful from here
Detroit city the week before the superbowl... it looks so peaceful and unsuspecting.
This morning I was listening to a radio DJ interviewing people on the streets of Detroit at about 10:30. They've been pushing all of these "amazing" events and parties for about 3 months now, and I suppose the people of Michigan have taken this very seriously. Of the 5 people interviewed while I was listening, 3 were completely drunk. While this wouldn't usually phase me, it was suprising to look at the clock and see 10:33am. Maybe these people thought the clock said "pm"...
I know that the Superbowl is a big deal over in the US, but this year seems to be even more of a fuss. There are tons of celebrities hanging out in Detroit this weekend, and the radio and tv stations are having a field day making the city seem like the happiest place on earth.
Welcome to Detroit. Please keep your purse and belongings inside the car and the doors locked at all times and enjoy the ride.
