We headed out for Atlanta at about 10:30am, we couldnt go any earlier as Georgia Tech had a home game and we needed to avoid the traffic heading for the 12:30 kick off, the drive in was pretty eventless with rock music playing on the radio and most of the traffic seemed to have made it to its destination ahead of us. We arrived in Atlanta about 1pm and i headed for the aquarium, As with all aquarium's this one had its unique selling point, it supposedly has the biggest single tank in the world, although the web advertises it as 'the biggest aquarium in the world'. The aquarium itself was divided into 5 zones each covering a different type of fish. The particular highlights were the giant tank which had both a moving walkway in a tunnel through the centre of the tank and a viewing window the size of a cimema screen and the coral reef tank which had a large viewing window with the tropical fish in it. After spending about 2.5hrs in the aquarium i headed out and across the park to the world of coke. This was a center which housed the history of the coca-cola company from its origins in Atlanta to its world wide distribution, after an introduction in the welcome area we were seated and shown a short animated movie and then onto the museum exhibits. The display of artifacts, the small bottling plant and the rather good 4d theater which had moving seats. To leave the museum you had to exit by the gift shop which i have kind of become immune to now but first it was a trip to the tasting zone which had coke product dispensers organised by continent, most of which i had never heard of and some which tasted like sugar in a glass. After the world of coke i met back up with my cousin and we went to Hard Rock Cafe Atlanta for dinner. we had the potato skins and i had the mega 12oz burger whilst my cousin had the mac and cheese. After dinner we headed back to the truck and the 3hr drive back to Greenville.
