HOTlanta!

Man! How quickly we forget! When we walked out of Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Int'l Airport yesterday afternoon, the heat and humidity were like a wall that hit us. Smack dab in the face! After almost 3 weeks of temps in the 60's, it was definitely a wake-up call.

But you know what! This really is a HOT city in so many ways. Every time we drive through the downtown, night and/or day, the skyline thrills us. In fact, we saw the new Wachovia building yesterday for the first time, finished and raring to go, and realized this city is always on the go, new or ever-changing in one way or the other.

Since I'm always ranting and raving about Europe's incredible architecture, I think it's about time I applaud the dazzling buildings of our beautiful downtown. You don't get the full effect from this photo but, believe me, some of the architecture is out of this world...in a modern, almost sci-fi way. You go, HOTlanta! Welcome home.

  2. Both views are incredible! Thanks, Nate, for sending Nancy's. How does she get any work done?! And you, Silke, have seen Atlanta but have you seen it at night? Next time you're here we'll have to make sure you do.
