Airports are designed to accommodate fast moving jets that shuttle the JetSet into and out of major metropolitan areas. Often we frequent flyers talk about the fastest and most convenient ways to get through security, past the traffic and into the comfort of our seats. All the while overlooking some of the more subtle designs that are there to sooth the soul or eye of the weary traveler.

After a brief intermission, the show comes back to life water sprouts and even an appearance by one of the coolest airport trains around.
The indoor train in Detroit is always a pleasure to ride. And it’s one of my favorite airport trains in the world to ride.
