Today has been a good day. Got up at 9:00, worked out at the U, did some work at the Cooper house, came home and got ready to go to Detroit.
We had a field trip for Culture and Ideas Class in Detroit. We were supposed to go downtown and talk about the Art Deco buildings, but it didn’t happen. The prof was late showing up the the Scarab Club behind the Detroit Institute of Art where we were to all meet. When he finally showed up, we decided to go to his house, and he’d give us a tour.
This guy lives the in the freakin’ GHETTO of Detroit. Burned out crack houses everywhere. No joke. BUT, inside, his house is unbelievable. I can’t even believe his art collection. I’m not going to get into it, because it’ll take way too long, but take my word for it, this guy’s place is like a palace/museum inside. He said he only paid $60,000 for the place because the area is so bad. The house is 3 stories + a basement, and is around 150 – 200 years old. Insane.
I just finished eating dinner. Lamb, cauliflower, and potatos. Apple pie for dessert.
