Enlightenment Tour Day 23: Travel/Day Off [Atlanta]
Hotlanta! Today was a day off in hot 'n humid Atlanta. Rest was gotten, movies were watched, and work was done. While walking to a restaurant, we swear we saw rapper Master P waiting for the traffic light in an ultra tricked out white Cadillac Escalade Pickup. Now if that wasnt a "Welcome to Atlanta" moment, I dont know what qualifies! Anyway, some saw "Minority Report", others saw "Goldmember". "Goldmember" ruled! I havent heard how "Minority Report" went over yet.
