Order like an Egyptian

You never know what you’re going to run into in the CNN Center since it’s such a popular stop whenever a big event comes to town. People stop by to eat, to chat and to grab a cup of overpriced Joe.

The junior robot builders competition is always a real treat because the participants wear festive costumes to identify their team. This group really took it to the next level by dressing like pharaohs from Egypt. Good times.





Rainy festival day

Inman Park Festival rainHere’s a sampling of some of the fun that was had at the Inman Park Festival (referenced in my last entry). The patron at left, like many others, improvised a solution to the wet weather. I know others had better experiences than I did. I was out in the rain. It was still fun, and there were lots of people out there making do. I saw a child being carried in a waterproof stroller-trailer thing with clear walls. Strangely amazing; no photo. Wares that I took home: beaded hippie bracelets, a tiki sign, a PEZ sign and some refrigerator magnets with quaint images on them. All for $30. Pictures forthcoming. This is almost a holiday for Atlanta’s arts community. Joyful, wonderful and totally MARTA-accessible.
