I love Atlanta and the drivers and the city! I actually wish I could have stayed there for a few days but it was great to at least get the morning there. I got myself turned around a few times and was able to score some amazing donuts and also tried a lot of soda....A LOT!
Went the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute which was beautifully done but also quite sad. The woman who greets all guests is such a sweet, sincere person that I could have talked with her for the whole afternoon. I find the history in the south fascinating and the fact that some of the same issues are around today hurts my heart a bit. The most ridiculous thing is that I parked TWICE at the wrong places thinking I was all suave and then finally parallel parked at the right place. The city itself is really nice and (again) if I had more time, I would have loved to look up more local history.
Tonight I am in Tupelo, Mississippi, the birth place of Mr. Elvis Presley.
Shall I start learning to swivel my hips now or wait until Graceland?
Tomorrow....on the road again!
