Things have gone well so far, now that I'm officially on this trip. I'm currently sitting at my gate at the ATL airport, with an hour and half until my flight leaves. They have free wifi here, so I thought I would take advantage of that. My 3 days in Tifton were uneventful. I got a couple of school assignments taken care of, so that's less I'll need to do abroad. I managed to check out a couple of new places to visit while in England, so that excites me. And I found a better deal on hotels in Ireland, so I jumped on that, too. On the family side, I got to chill a good bit. Ran errands with dad around town on Tuesday and then trivia with the bro and friends that night. Went ... read more

March 12, 2015 (Atlanta, GA) At Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport waiting for DL200 to leave around 8:15 local time. Had a nice late lunch with the team at ECCO, and now just sitting around, charging up all our electrical gizmos, squeezing the Internet for all it can give us and thinking long term: 15 hours of seat numbing movie watching! Had a bit of excitement on the way to the OKC airport from DMEI...we didn't fit into the Shuttle van that they sent. Derek's wife graciously took a load to Will Rogers World Airport for us and we all made it just fine. Sussenbach tried to crawl out the back of the plane when we landed in Atlanta. He thought he was home and wanted to run back to his mama, but we caught him just ... read more

Težko bi rekla, da je Atlanta postala moj dom in tudi ameriške sanje mi ne dišijo najbolj, hrano lahko opišem samo z eno besedo - presladko, in preživeti polovico življenja v avtu se mi ne zdi mikavno. Fulbright štipendija mi je omogočila najboljše delo, trenirala sem z odlično plesno skupino, uživala z Atlantčani, bila odlično sprejeta, spoznala več plati ameriške svobode, se preselila 5x v 6 mesecih, se navduševala nad parki, obupavala nad javnim prevozom, kričala na NBA tekmi, pojedla veliko pic, plačala ogromno napitnin in neštetokrat vlekla ven mojo osebno, da so me spustili v bar. Jugovzhod je zanimiv del Amerike in ga vsem toplo priporočam. Savannah, Charleston, Athens, so čudovita mesta, ki jih večinoma vsak turist prezre, medtem ko leti v San Francisco, Boston, Chicago. Ljudje na tem koncu so res prijetni in to ... read more

V Atlanti je prepovedano piti alkohol na ulicah, parkih.., razen v času prireditve ali festivalov. Odgovor na to je, da prirejajo festivale vikend za vikendom. Mogoče zaradi pijače ali druženja, mogoče zaradi vremena, ker je še zelo poletno, vse skupaj pa vedno obrnejo na humanitarno pomoč in se vedno zbirajo donacije in prispevki za različne namene. Včasih se kar malo frustriram, ker je toliko stvari naenkrat in se ne da biti na vseh koncih. Šele čez 14 dni, ampak začelo se je, namesto karnevala februarja, imajo tukaj Halloween. V ZDA so ga pripeljali že dolgo nazaj Irci, ampak kdo se sprašuje o tem, postal je ameriški in to je prava akcija. Tokrat bodo slike povedale več. Vse je že nakrancljano z bučami, pajki, duhci, takšnimi in drugačnimi prikaznimi in okostnjaki. Vzdušje nalezljivo, ta vikend je že ... read more

Tokrat je tema bolj čudna ali pa zanimiva, kakor vzamete. Oakland Cemetery je največje pokopališče v Atlanti, in kaj pol, a ne?! Nič posebnega, zelo veliko pokopališče, da rabiš zemljevid, tam pa jasno, pokopani vojaki, slavni, manj slavni, neslavni in kdorkoli pač živi tam. V nedeljo me je cimra povabila na pijačo na to pokopališče, ker bo tam tematska zabava, piknik, glasba v živo in tako naprej. Čakaj malo, na 'britof' nej grem, spijem pivo in se pogovarjam o vremenu??? In sem šla seveda, s kolesom, toplo in sončno nedeljsko popoldne. Tam pa, kot je rekla Lisa, veliko ljudi, veliko kostumov in veliko grobov. Imajo zelo zanimivo idejo oživljanja pokopališč, kot del mesta in del življenja. Organizirajo veliko vodenih obiskov, pa ne samo o zgodovini in o slavnih pokopanih tam, ampak Halloween obiski, pripovedovanje zgodb, ekološki ... read more
