A pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia conjured up the recipe for Coca Cola in 1886, and the rest is history. From what I understand, you don't even mention the word Pepsi here. I can't vouch for this story but someone told me that a delivery driver for Coca Cola was fired after someone tattled that he had a Pepsi during his lunch break. I find that hard to believe because I have yet to see a Pepsi product available for purchase anywhere in Atlanta.
We see Coca Cola murals, billboards, and products around the city more than any other. As the kids are avid bottle cap collectors, we are finding these bottle caps everywhere!
If you have a few minutes listen to this episode of This American Life. Ira Glass claims to have found the original recipe!
This week's theme for the Drawing Challenge comes from none other than
Atlanta, Georgia. Did you know that Atlanta is the home of Coca Cola?
This morning I had a request from Ariane for a video from Atlanta. I took a video while the kids and I took a walk to a nearby park that we love for it's trees, the pond, and all of its birds. Our neighborhood is named Inman Park and is the very first suburb of Atlanta. The streets are lined with historical homes and giant live oak and magnolia trees. It's perfectly shaded for a nice morning walk during the hot Southern summer. But from what I hear, we aint' seen nuthin' yet!
The video may be a tad boring and it's pretty shaky, but the song...the song is definitely worth the 3 minutes and 36 seconds. Enjoy.
The kids and I joined Zach in Atlanta about 6 weeks ago. Wow. Time is flying by! We are loving it here. Atlanta is friendly, beautiful, (so many trees!) and historically rich. We found out that we are leaving sooner than expected, the start of July. There are still so many places to see and people to meet. Wonderful new friends have been made that we hate to leave. This bittersweet roller coaster that is our gypsy life.
