Ed and Bertel are spending this coming week in Detroit to talk to auto manufacturers.
First impression: I could get a nice fixer-upper in an up and coming neighborhood for a little more than the price of my ticket from Beijing to Detroit. Compared to Beijing prices, this is a steal.Second impression: When I asked the doorman of my hotel where the next cash machine is, a hotel shuttle drove me to it. The driver waited patiently until my business was conducted, then he drove me to the T-Mobile store for a cell phone refill. When I thanked him for the unusual courtesy, he answered: “We aren’t allowed to let our guests walk around here.”
If any Detroit area B&B want to get together, please let us know. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings look good on the calendar.
