Greetings from ATL

A quiet week on the blog usually means I'm up to something... or that real life is anything but quiet. This week it's both. I landed in Atlanta on Wednesday and it's been non-stop ever since. A couple of first impressions? Atlanta is beautiful  and people in the south are very, very polite, which throws me off. This was something I was already aware of, having traveled to Memphis, Nashville and all over Texas before, but it never ceases to amaze me how people will just talk to you. And it's genuine. I like it, but will admit all the opportunities for small talk take some getting used to.

Today, my co-worker Dawn and I are off to the first day of Shaky Knees. I'm so excited to see the Pixies this afternoon! And the Strokes, and the Mountain Goats, and Zella Day, and... Anyone else on the line-up you'd recommend? let me know! What about favorite Atlanta hangouts? I've already explored Little 5-Points, Decatur, Kirkwood, and Buckhead, and really loved each and every one of my experiences. Also, the food! Oh, the food...

Anyway, hello. How are you? How's your week? I hope it's been a good one :)

Sounds like a fun and busy trip! Such a great list of bands. Years ago we played at a festival in Athens, GA. They were great. I'm seeing The Pixies this month just four blocks from my house. Can't wait! Have a great trip!

Aaaah, so excited for you! I've always wanted to visit Atlanta and become acquainted with the South. Good luck on your trip!

I know what you mean about small talk, though where I live it is completely opposite. In Prague people are mostly in a pissed off mood and there is no small talk between strangers however if you have a dog you, there is loads of small talk :D
