i did find the thick southern accents slightly endearing but also annoying. seriously...do you think it takes effort to talk like that? i wanted to hear them try dropping it for a while. it was pretty cute to hear everyone calling each other "ma'am" and "sir." and atlanta was a cool city...made me want to study the civil rights movement a little more.
my creepy little friend from the previously-mentioned horror hotel. YUCK! three inches, i'm not kidding.
georgia has gorgeous trees, vegetations and mountains. i definitely had a scenic drive.
and the mark of my return to civilization...i was really so delighted by my meal last night that i had to take a picture. for some reason i will never tire of room service, even at an embassy suites...maybe because it's so ridiculously expensive i'd never get it on my own.
only one slight delay on the flight home today, but who am i kidding -- i slept pretty much the entire way (albeit uncomfortably -- i hate sleeping on airplanes. i don't know how i'm going to survive the 14 hour trip to germany). time change is rough, especially when you're only going somewhere (somewhere that's three hours ahead and you have to wake up when your body thinks it's 2 a.m.) for two days. i came home and took a big nap :) so glad to be home.
