DETROIT DIARY - 2

It is comforting to know that Detroit is not the most dangerous city in the US. It is ranked way behind at #2. It is supposedly more dangerous than BTM Layout or Banshankari in Bangalore.

Have been warned not to walk alone on the streets after sunset. Which is 1600 hrs in this place (ok, I'm exaggerating by an hour)!! That rules out evening walks after work. Every night, I hear sirens and weird noises, and I'm thinking of wild shooting and murders happening, and police cars chasing them.

Detroit nagaram urangum vaeLai kolaigaL vizhugudhe
Thalaigal uruludhe
Padiyai irangiye kaalgaL poga marukkudhe!


It rained heavily last night, and what would have been a major flood in Chennai or Bangalore, has ended up a waterwash for the roads.

I have moved to Blore from Chennai. PPl have warned me not to go out after work. It was hard to adjust bcoz in Chennai, I even used to return back from work alone at 10 or 10.30 or go for shopping too:-(
