This morning we wake up and our Pittsburgh hosts again graciously fed us a wonderful breakfast. Over breakfast, we decided to walk around some parts of Pittsburgh that we found interesting. Compared to last night, the city was dead. It was still amazing to see the downtown area. The PPG building especially.
We left for Detroit mid-afternoon. The drive became more flat ground as we passed through Ohio. Same but different farmland. Could just be the interstate. We took a last minute Jersey left into Cleveland with the intentions of visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We went inside and decided not too. The thing I hate about this toursity part of the trip is the PARKING. We ended up paying $10 to park at the Science Center when literally 70 yards away there was $5 parking. Ugh!
But Cleveland was interesting. It was perfect whether for taking pictures and being outside. We walked around Lake Erie which was the 1st Great Lake either of us has seen.
Boy was it smelly. There was thousands of seagulls, and the stench was nearly unbearable. The closer we were to the Brown's Stadium the worse it got. We stayed only maybe an hour and a half and then decided to cruise the downtown area before getting back on the road. Cleveland, unlike Pittsburgh, was easy to navigate. It was a small city, and being that it is a holiday weekend, it was not busy. I could slowly cruise around and look at things while driving. The gridlock also helped a lot. Cleveland is a good mixture of old and new architecture. But the city itself consists mostly of suburban commuters.
Back on the boring highway, we cruise along through Michigan. Immediately we notice the lack of foreign cars. It's quite hilarious actually. Driving along, we passed a lot of factories and car plants. Again, the flat boring ground, but quite an easy drive.
In Detroit, we are actually staying on the outskirts in a place called Grosse Pointe. It is quite cute, again, everything is on level ground. Apparently this town has a very good reputation.
Tomorrow we are looking foward to seeing the Henry Ford Museum. After, we will head to Chicago!
