Where I stayed
Casa de Bell
It all started when my mate, Eric, picked me up from the airport. Unfortunately, he was off to a 2-day business trip a few hours later.
This visit to Atlanta was one of reunions. Later that evening, I had dinner with a girl friend named Bevan whom I hadn't seen in nearly 4 years. The first time we met was in Prague back in 2003. The next time we saw each other was in Madrid, and a few years later, we met up in Vancouver. It was indeed a nice reunion.
Earlier in the day, I had managed to get in touch with another dear girl friend named Meg whom I hadn't seen nor spoken to in nearly 6 years. When she learned of my visit, she was quick to make time for me later that evening, allowing me to crash a birthday party she was a part of. The following day, she canceled all her work meetings and took the entire day off just to spend time with me and show me around. Who does that??
We started with a quick shopping trip to the local mall, and then had Mexican food that was to die for at Nuevo Laredo.
I must say, for a Mexican restaurant in this part of the country, I was rather impressed. And although I'm not much of a tequila person, their Cadillac Margaritas are worth the visit alone.
After lunch, she took me to Atlanta's Botanical Garden.
I wasn't even in Atlanta two days yet and it had already been pretty epic. I continue to count my lucky stars at how I'm blessed with such wonderful people to be a part of my journey. And as I write to this to share it with all of you, I'm able to relive it all over again and simply smile.
Enjoy the rest of the images. Thanks for following...
