After all Mom's worrying and getting me slightly paranoid (I don't think I really posted that here) about me driving up to Atlanta "It's not safe on Labor Day weekend." The drive was mostly boring.

Seriously. 319 is mostly back country anyway so lots of Georgia landscape and I got in 75 and there was no traffic for a long time. I'm not sure how much of that was people just not travelling becuase of the hurricane.

Also, I didn't have trouble finding gas. I stopped a couple of times and got gas each time I stopped and I paid mostly over $3 gallon, but there was gas. Some little towns I went through while on 319 didn't have gas though.

[livejournal.com profile] gingerk has a lovely home with lots and lots of books and pretty things. She took me to the DeKalb Farmer's Market which I've only been to once and it's such an amazing place! All the choices! two kinds of baby bok choy, purple beans, more kinds of fruit than you can shake a stick at. I saw several types of exotic mushrooms live and in person for the first time. We bought lots of fruit including figs which I don't think I've had ever.

After the Farmer's Market we went to dinner and I had Indian food for the first time. I forgot the name of the dish I had, but it was this chicken and chickpea stew (sort of) flavored with maybe cardamon or cinnamon and had just a little kick of heat. It was served with puffy bread. And we had Naan. All very good.

We're getting ready to leave for Dragoncon! Whoo!
