Saint Louis Daily Photo In Detroit - Along The River

Detroit has an attractive riverfront park, leading northeast/upstream from downtown. The Detroit River carries an awful lot of water, draining Lakes Michigan, Huron and Superior towards Lakes Erie and Ontario, the St. Lawrence River and the Atlantic. This is the only area where you can stand in the US and look south into Canada.

That's where we met Demetrius, sitting amid the blooming trees playing his new steel drum. He said it had just arrived from Russia. Not what I would expect and a long way from Jamaica but it sang as sweetly as any Caribbean breeze.
