Weekend Trip to Atlanta, Georgia

John and I visit our friends in Atlanta this weekend. We did some exploring around the area and visited the Martin Luther King Jr’s birthplace, the Ebenezer Baptist Church where he used to preach, and some other museum. 

If you are going to Atlanta you definitely need a car to get to the tourist places. We didn’t get to see a lot because we didn’t have much time. Everything in Atlanta is about 30-45 driving to get to your location. And yes, for me that’s a lot of driving. 🙂 🙂 🙂 I am not used to that because here in Buffalo everything is 15-20 minutes before you get to your location. 

Once we get there we had dinner at this place called Who’s Got Soul Southern CafeWe we’re starving so we did order a lot of food LOL as always! We order fried fish with hush puppies and two sides of green beans and collard greens, southern chicken wings with mac and cheese and rice, fried shrimp with fries and potato salad. We had a lot of food and bring all the leftovers at the Khouma’s home.

The next day we had to drive all the way to the breakfast place called The Egg Harbor Cafe. It was nice and super busy and we waited for about 25 minutes but it’s worth the wait because the food is delicious. I love the food and the tea is awesome! Mariama and I got the blueberry tea and the teapot is really cool!

After breakfast we went straight to the Martin Luther Kings house but unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to go inside the house we had picture outside instead. After going there we went to see the Ebenezer Baptist church where he used to preach. We sat down inside the church for a few minutes and it gives me goosebumps while seating there because I can feel his presence when he preach on the church. A lot of students have a mini field trip to see his house and the church. After that we went straight to the museum and spent quiet amount of time there.

After the tour we went home at the Khouma’s house and rest. We got a chance to share our wedding videos with them and after that we had dinner at the Thai restaurant called Sri Thai. It was good but not authentic like Thailand of course. After dinner we went back to their house and finish our wedding video and go to bed. 

The next day we went to the Filipino store and get my supplies and basically just hangout in the house. I made some caldereta and pancit for them and they love it! After dinner we needed to say goodbye to them we drive all together to the airport and that’s the end of our trip!


Overall it was a great trip! John and I both had a lot of fun hanging out with the Khouma family especially playing with the little one (Mariame)! 🙂 🙂 she called us “the kids” LOL.

Our next trip it’s gonna be Florida for Thanksgiving so stay tuned guys!

Keep in touch! 🙂 🙂 🙂
