The Road to Change 1/14: Peach Trees and Pesto Pizza

We woke up close to Atlanta, and spent most of the day in town. Driving in was a somewhat unique experience; the forests obscured everything except office towers.

After riding back from central Atlanta on the MARTA train line, we sat through a bit of traffic before clearing the metro area. We eventually made it to Athens, home of the University of Georgia, and stopped for some delicious pesto pizza. The cook bellowed out the order numbers as they came up, and boasted to me as picked up out pizza that he wasn't even yelling his loudest.

We drove on through the lonely night, passing by freight trains and abandoned grain silos. We crossed a large lake into South Carolina, and the moon shone across the surface. Eventually we made it to Greenwood, and after having trouble finding a hotel, spotted an Econo Lodge and stopped for the night.
