The Detroit skyline

I visited and participated in a tour run by the Detroit Experience Factory (DxF) on a day trip to Detroit with my classmates from Honors 241.

She constantly prodded me about how I would be spending my summer, and I constantly deflected her questions with half-baked placations.
