And by illustrated, I mean that this post will be full of pics!
Hi ya’ll–I was in Atlanta for work this weekend, and I had a fantastic time. The weather on Saturday was absolutely gorgeous, so I spent almost all afternoon walking around downtown and soaking up the sights. I stayed in the Marriott Marquis downtown, which was reeeeally nice:
I just wandered around downtown and found a yummy ATL place to eat–the Landmark Diner. I had a monte cristo sandwich–turkey, ham, and swiss cheese with french toast for bread! It was de-lish, but I could only eat 1/2 of it! I also may or may not have indulged in a slice of their red velvet cake for my dinner; I have no regrets!
In addition to walking around all over downtown, I decided to pay a visit to “The Wonderful World of Coca-Cola” museum. I’ve always been a “coke” gal–none of that Pepsi stuff, thank you! It was really super fun, and I took LOADS of pics:
In the last room, there are over 60 flavors of pop that coke makes from all over the world that you can sample. You can try all of them if you want–I only tried 2 or so from each “continent.” My faves were actually apple-flavored pops…they were most popular in Asian and South American countries. I didn’t care so much for the almost licorice-tasting one from Tanzania…but it was so cool to be able to try them all! If you’re ever looking for tourist-y things to do in Atlanta, I’d def recommend this museum, esp if you are a Coke-lover. There is a nice Norman Rockwell (and others) art exhibit and TONS of coke paraphernalia, not to mention a great gift shop where you can buy anything and everything Coca-Cola. Lots of history, too. Did you know that the Coke company sold for FIVE CENTS?! Cray. Next year if I go to this fair again, I’m going to try the CNN tour or the aquarium.
I walked SO MUCH between downtown ATL and the ATL airport that I got more than my fair share of exercise…which is good, as I barely did anything else last week with being sick. I weighed in today–let’s just say it was a huge surprise–will post tomorrow! Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
