more of detroit

we hit avalon bakery for hot cross buns.
and alley taco for amazing fish tacos and elotes.
and sister pie for salted maple pie.

there are folks in detroit who have opened shop 
with multiple bottom lines.
folks who are reaching out to create businesses based 
on community building, collaboration and sustainability. 
there's a cool letterpress studio, signal return press.
and germack, where i found blood orange tea, 
peach apricot (think iced, in summer) and a "balance" blend.

and check out MoGo!

and we spent time with an amazing docent at 
who helped us see every nook and cranny of 
diego rivera's massive 
detroit industry cycle of frescoes.

we spent time wandering around belle isle conservancy 
where lindsey does some volunteer work.
it was a lovely place to spend time on a chilly march afternoon!
specimens from england's kew gardens were shipped to this 
gorgeous place for safe keeping during ww2.

can't wait to get back to this fascinating city.
