I went for a power walk in the sun around the island of Kungsholmen the other day in Stockholm, Sweden and it both made me feel I am alone in nature as well as in a buzzing city together with tons of other people with whom I can simply coexist.

Food in the Hood is a Detroit culinary adventure. We hit a different restaurant every time to enjoy the amazing diversity of foods that Detroit has to offer. It brings those who live outside the city downtown for a night of economic stimulus.
