I had never thought I will ever get to see the United States, owing to the fact that it lay completely opposite to the side of the planet I lived in (India). But you never know what’s in store for you, right?
Visiting this beautiful country did happen to me. It was a beautiful morning and I was excitedly packing my bag to catch my flight to Detroit, where my sister lived. Truth be told, I was more excited to see the country than to meet my sister (hopefully, she isn’t reading this). And why not? When I landed there, I couldn’t take my eyes off the clear blue sky (which one can hardly notice in India). It was summers and the sun was merrily shining but the climate was pretty cool to my relief.
My first evening went to astonishment when I waited and waited for the sun to go down but it just didn’t let go of our planet earth until 10 pm! Wow! It was something that I had never witnessed before. I couldn’t sleep all night, thanks to jet lag but then I was pretty adamant to explore the city the next day.
I visited the Detroit-Windsor region, which happens to be the US-Canada border, separated by the Detroit River. It is a beautiful sight with a lot of cafes and eateries in the adjacent GM Renaissance Center. You can just sit by the riverfront and soak up in the view. Being an art enthusiast, the wall graffiti on the GM Renaissance Center was a lovely treat to my eyes. One doesn’t need much when the surrounding is so serene with a splendid view.
