Back home now. Totally jet-lagged and confused.
Where was I… oh yes,
F is for Flea market.
and full of interesting and crazy things
I did buy a few things… another photo for another post!
F is for Flying Biscuit Cafe (Atlanta)
where we had our first breakfast. Delicious.
F is also for Fried Green Tomatoes
oh, yes, 'those' fried green tomatoes
eaten at the '' Whistle Stop Cafe. Delicious (again).
Although the story takes place in Alabama, the movie was filmed in Juliette, Georgia. And here's a real train going by… with a very loud whistle!
G is for grits
(the white stuff that looks like mashed potatoes). I liked them, and yes, we did other things other than eating… but not many, and my now-tight jeans can confirm that!!
G is for Gallery Cafe (Savannah)
a lovely coffee shop full of art students.
H is for High Art Museum (Atlanta)
a brilliant place. We had little time so we spent all of it in the wing of American modern art… and it was definitively the right choice
I is for Iced Tea
J is for jogging in Forsyth Park (Savannah)
early morning affair (to morally justify to myself all the food I was about to eat in the course of the day)… I felt like one of the locals.
K is for King (Martin Luther King Jr to be exact)
a very moving place dedicated to an amazing man
his grave, and the house where he was born.
and his church too
He was only 39 when he was killed and yet he'd already helped changing the world. I'm 40 in two weeks… kind of makes you think about stuff.
L is for lighthouse (Tybee Island)
At one point it was the highest structure in the US. 175 steps to the top. Amazing views and jelly knees (I don't like heights very much, I'm more of a down to earth kind of person). The cutest light keeper's cottage ever (for another post).
M is for Mustang
Mr M was 'car renter' in chief. I was only a mere driver. It was great although in the scorching heat we were the only ones with the roof down. My burnt upper arms after the first day explained us why. Doh.
M is also for Mercer House
The amazing house at the centre of the book 'Midnight in the garden of good and evil' and of the movie of the same title. Beautiful place, we toured it but weren't allowed to take photos… definitively worth it. It was just like being on set, incredibly atmospheric place.
And this concludes the second instalment… back tomorrow? same place?
