We were going to hit Eastern Market today, but it was ridiculously packed. Parking was hopeless. Too many yuppies from the suburbs have been flooding the place the last couple of years. Prices have increased accordingly. Oh well.

Figured I'd take a pic of everyone's favorite piece of Detroit ruin porn before it hopefully gets bought and rehabbed by Ford Motor Company. Oddly enough, it occurred to me that I had never taken a picture of it before.

Image

Turned out to be the calm before the storm. About 1/2 hour after I took the picture, rain started coming down in buckets.
Nogs asked about this building after I posted this pic. It did end up getting bought by Ford. There's going to be a documentary about it airing tonight: Detrtoit: Comeback City

Yeah can't wait for that blockbuster :roll:

Thanks Moe. I'm glad to see Ford get the building.

I've always hoped the Morouns would face some consequences for their neglect, but not likely.

At this moment we're in the Museum of Folk Musical Instruments in Almaty.
Domras and sherters abound.

It's a really lovely little museum. ImageImage

You have reached Nirvana!

When I went there, the lights were all off and the guide (Abylai as it turned out) followed me a round and switched them on and off as I entered each room.

He also let me play some of the "domras". Tuned in fifths like a violin/mandolin as it turned out.

Then he gave me a solo performance in the wee auditorium.

I visited a museum in a small town in Vietnam and they did the same thing. A guide toured me around and as I entered each room he'd flip the lights on, then off as we were leaving.

It seems quite popular, judging by today. I expected us to be the only people in it, but that was far from the case.

It felt that there was a sense of pride about the place. Everything was beautifully presented, there were even English translations (a first for any museum/sight here), and...I dunno. It's hard to put it into words, but the whole atmosphere was about having something to celebrate in terms of workmanship and musicianship. It made it a bit special.

Dolphins aren't unusual sights up here.
They used swim around offshore rigs.

Last night, I was overhearing the fish and chip shop woman saying how they surrounded the boat when she was out fishing yesterday.

It's nice but not that a big deal.
