Blogtrot: Atlanta

04-06 October
The home of The Braves and the 9th largest city in the US was the second spot on our ten southern state blog-trot. With only two nights and one full day, this Yankee enjoyed every second of southern hospitality. First time to the ATL, it offered anything a good city can offer: great food, good shops, museums, culture, music, etc. I was even able to catch Dalí: The Late Work at the High Museum which, of course, I fell in love with. If only we had more time I would've been all over the Signs of Life: Photographs by Peter Sekaer exhibition, which is the first time a city exhibited his collection. Pretty sad the museum closed so early I splurged with dropping $80.00 in the book store - typical. Spent the day dropping by Gladys Knight's restaurant for some legit chicken and waffles, cruising through shops in Little 5 Points and was able to catch up with old college friends who were new to the city. I even met a guy who told me I was his next customer - selling me a 2 in 1, lighter+knife combo for $2.00. Ha. Oh Hotlanta, you are def a city I am eager to return to.
