weekend in ‘the d.’

Standard

took a ride on the q line train

in detroit city

on it’s inaugural weekend

so full of happy people

got off at campus martius

a downtown oasis

sat on the beach

created right in the middle of the city

for outdoor summer adventures

 enjoyed wonderful cuban jazz

live and in color

plus a little guy who couldn’t resist sitting in with the band

 a natural improv artist of the highest order

the energy in the city was contagious.

“a city isn’t so unlike a person. they both have the marks to show they have many stories to tell.
they see many faces. they tear things down and make new again.”

  1. What a great celebration. We are flying through Detroit for a wedding next month in Ohio. Would you be so kind to recommend a couple of places we should see as we are driving about?
