I just returned from Atlanta. My 4th foray into the deep South. I stuck to plan well. My first day there I had shrimp and grits for breakfast. I had never had grits before. I was not hungry for another 9 hours.

I walked a lot. the downtown area is beautiful. Not San Francisco, but beautiful.

I did some DDP yoga from his Yoga for Regular Guys book.

Over all, what a great thee days.

Had to look up grits - sounds like what we'd call polenta. Definitely stick to the ribs!

Glad you enjoyed it! I too live in Atlanta and also lived in SF years ago. It's not quite the walking city San Francisco is but it's much nicer than it was 20 years ago and there's quite a bit to do. I love visiting cities for 2-3 days and checking them out by walking.

Welcome home. I visited Atlanta in the summer one year. Wow. But you're probaby used to humidity. I imagine it was pleasant now.

Grits don't stick with me quite the same unless I make them like they do in the South. I imagine there was some delicious form of fat in them. Smile

I live in Atlanta and you picked a nice time to visit. The summers are brutal- but at least the swimming pool is always cool.
Curious as to where you ate? Shrimp and Grits are really a low country thing- think Savannah, Charleston- but they are so good that the rest of the south has adopted them. Grits are ubiquitous here and are much like polenta except made from hominy rather than cornmeal. Yum. Like any grain, the best kind for blood sugar is the least processed. There are heritage grits that are stone ground and I'm sure made with milk and plenty of butter.
Don't know if you know, but DDP yoga is headquartered just north of Atlanta. next time you visit you can take a live class with the man himself.
