A year and a half seemed too long a time to wait to see my parents again- but in just two days, I'd be with them again in the States! Yey! Here are some of the happy twists and turns of my last trip to the U.S. during the Christmas holiday season of 2006.
A myriad flavors of free-flowing Coke products from all over the world, strategically placed toilets for those who've had too much to drink, plus this modern artful contraption of meandering Coke bottles greeted us at the World of Coca-Cola Museum in Atlanta, Georgia.
Greenville, South Carolina is my parents' new home and home as well to the Liberty Bridge, a 355-foot long curvy footpath that gives visitors a scenic access to the Reedy River Falls that cascade below.
Gnarled branches frame the vast expanse of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, touted as the largest private home in America. Its interior is as fascinating as its magnificent facade; it was such a bonus to see the entire house decked up in its Christmas garb.
Charleston, South Carolina is my kind of city to visit, with its wonderful mix of my two loves- history and good food. The restaurant of Hyman's Seafood Co.- famous for its wrought iron staircase and stellar she crab soup- provides the perfect setting for the convergence of gustatory and geeky needs.
Mom and Pop! See you on Monday!
