East to West: Day One

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! 


  1. Thinking of you! Miss you already. I'm actually occupying your office for now. Safe travels! Enjoy those donuts!
