BACK TO DETROIT
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Alongside the road, several mosques. Detroit has one of the largest Middle-Eastern communities outside the Middle East. There are also abandoned schools with barred windows.
I get there the day after the official announcement of the city filing for bankruptcy. This “registration of the era” is important because it sets the mood, like Zimmerman/Trayvon case.
The next day, I meet a group of friends, through Rola still. They seem to support each other in adversity, like a sinking ship. They’re all from Detroit. Slightly worn out by life. They know how to cook and garden. “While waiting”, they hold small jobs, help in building demolition, and retrieve stuff here and there, like some old postcards or other obsolete items.
