April 30

My sessions didn’t start until the afternoon, so I had all morning to wander around downtown. My hotel was just a couple blocks from Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium and the New World of Coke. My grandparents used to live in Atlanta so whenever John-Paul and I would go visit, Mamu would take us all over the place. We used to love going to Coke and Underground, and I haven’t been since at least high school, so I thought I would take advantage of my free morning. I was sorely displeased!
Old Coke ~ garish and loud, like any self respecting tourist spot should be…

New Coke ~ sophisticated and boring, what a letdown!

At least they saved the sign. But it isn’t anywhere near the New World of Coke, it’s over by Underground. Ooh, and I got an Orange Julius while I was at underground… so yummy!
