Mar 24 - Marietta Hostage Crisis - Day 75
Spring is in the air and so is all the pollen. My head hurts and my nose is running. So I decided to attack the problem head on. I went to visit the Botanical Garden near Piedmont Park. The were having an "Orchid" exhibition in their hothouses. I took some photos of the enemy, and here they are.
Afterwards, I drove around the corner to explore Piedmont Park. All in all a nice green place in the middle of the city. A LOT of people roaming around a big giant grassy area; reminded me of the Commons in Cambridge. A small lake, lots of people throwing frisbees, and the clincher...a pub right at the edge of the park! They had some pretty good Euro-beers, and thank the gods, they brewed their own beer as well. So I ordered a "Belgian Ale" and went to sit in the sun. Not quite the main square in Brugge, but it was pretty darn close.
I miss Europe!
