Yours truly is in the Hoostess City of the South: Savannah Georgia, embarking on a world-class road trip. We arrived around dinner time on Monday, and as soon as we could check into the hotel, we were out into the humid inferno of the deep south.
Our clothes literally seemed to melt off us as we walked down the spanish moss-cloaked trees.
The only thing more ubiquitous than Spanish moss in Savannah is the flagrant consumption of alcohol on the streets. People are encouraged to take their drinks from restaurants, bars and hotel mini-fridges in "To Go" cups and roam the city.
This is going to be a GREAT WEEK!
As we were making our way through the final miles of our road trip to Savannah, we noticed a burning odor, and came across an industrial site that looked like something out of a science fiction movie. Huge plants churned out smoke and cast a odoriferous haze over the vicinity of Savannah.
By the time we arrived at our hotel, either the smell had dissipated or our noses had acclimated. I'll be trying to post from Savannah as I get time. Have a great week Arlington!
