The Heidelberg Project

     Detroit's Heidelberg Project is INCREDIBLY inspiring. Not only does it have a touching history, but it also is bringing hope to a city that so badly needs it. This was my first visit, but I definitely plan on returning. If you ever get the chance to visit, you definitely should! It's an experience and really showcases the enthusiasm and talent that the people of Detroit have to offer.

     When I was in middle school, my spanish class took a trip to "Mexican Town" and the best part was La Gloria Bakery, so I took a side trip after visiting Heidelberg Street. It is so cheap and incredibly delicious. As you walk in, you take a tray and pick out all of the baked goods your heart desires. The best is the caramel churros (fried dough similar to a doughnut that are rolled in cinnamon or filled), especially when they're fresh baked and still warm.

churros - chocolate, strawberry, caramel & cinnamon
raton de chocolate (brownie rat)
empanada de queso (cheese turnover)
"i love you" sugar cookies
