a strange freaky occurrence. a mystery, really…

P1030692for some reason that we could never figure out, there was someone tagging buildings and surfaces all over the little town of ganda with the word “detroit,” which made me (being from detroit) feel both at home and slightly paranoid that someone was following me – which, come to think of it, always went hand in hand (being at home and feeling a bit paranoid…)

my favorite was this one: “os detroit os mais mau” which translates to something like “the detroit – the worst of the worst” or better yet, “the baddest of the bad”

P1030691all the government buildings are this pink color.  not sure what this was or is.  it’s a hop skip and a jump from the railway tracks. it actually sort of looks like the university buildings right next to it on the other side…
