Detroit for the first time

I’m finally, finally, finally going to Detroit! I’ve considered going on so many occasions, but have never done it. I will be meeting a new client for the first time, and I’m very excited, because together we planned the trip enough to be full, but loose enough for improvisation as needed. What is going to be particularly memorable is that we will be spending a great deal of the time riding roller coasters!!! I have never blogged it, but I absolutely LOVE them. They are everything that I adore about movement, dance, and gymnastics: Falling, turning, flying, stopping… I get high on those types of rides. The exhilaration of sitting down is almost the same kind of anxious nausea I got before performances when I was in high school, college, and graduate school. Everything about them makes me burst with pure joy. I am especially excited, because I can’t remember being on roller coasters since I was living in Los Angeles, and that was 1998 – 2002 (so it’s been nearly a decade, if memory serves). I’m a bit disappointed in myself: We have Carowinds right here in Charlotte, and I’ve never taken the time to go… Boo!! I should really take better advantage of all the amenities my city has to offer. But, at any rate, this is going to be so much fun!

  2. I’ve never been to Detroit before, but I’d still be interested in visiting someday despite all the bad press it has been receiving in recent years. It seems like somewhere with a lot of tradition and culture. Did you get to visit neighboring Windsor, Ontario? From what I’ve learned, it seems like a very exciting place!

    • As it turns out, I have never been to Detroit either. Once I landed we left immediately for Cedar Pointe in Ohio, and we didn’t return until it was time for me to fly home. I’m always up for exploring Canada (when it’s warm).

      • Hahaha, When you said Detroit, and then said roller-coasters, I immediately thought of Cider point! I guess I was right.
