Day 57 - Cleveland - Detroit, Michigan, USA

Day 57 – 4th August 2005 -5:00 GMT Total Miles 10790

Woke up at 8:30am and listened to my ipod for a couple of hours until everyone was awake, we checked out the hotel just before 12pm and I drove along the turnpike through Ohio until we got to Toledo, then we entered Michigan State and drove along the I-75 until we reached Detroit. First impressions of Detroit are that it looks very run down and grubby. We were staying at the Ramada, the building had very high ceilings and decoratively carved, but the building was very old and run down. Our rooms were huge with a kitchen area and living room, as well as the two double beds and a bathroom.

Spent the next couple of hours in the bar having a drink and updating our blogs, I then played Reece at pool and won five games straight, even seven balled him. I then decided I would go and explore the near by casino, so caught the people mover from outside the hotel which is a two carriage train that only goes in one direction and has about 13 stops on it’s loop.

I went to stop seven which was Greek town and visited the Casino. I started off by winning on Blackjack, then changed tables and won some more, I also played on a few slot machines and won on 3 of them, on one I won $148.75 from 5c So a good night in the casino with a profit of over $320 in an hour.
