The title of this post could be a Greek mythical story. Not so, for today I bring you news of Helen, a little taste of Germany in the north of Georgia.

Hot on the heels of their annual Oktoberfest, the Christmas decorations and lights are being readied.

After breakfast at the bakery this morning, we stocked up on some more carbs, because after travelling in the US for some weeks, that’s what we need.

We’re in Atlanta for the last leg of the trip. Rob is a gifted travel planner and his skill in finding value accommodation has come to the fore again. We’re in a top floor apartment just north of the city centre until we fly on Saturday, which will give us a chance to see Atlanta and surrounds, and get ourselves ready for the trip home.

I’ve been offline for a few days ‘camping’ in North Carolina with friends I met last year at the same event. As and when it all gets distilled in my head, I’ll be posting about the highlights. It may take some time to compile them, as there are many.

Here’s our view for the next few days, that is, if you go out onto the balcony and turn left. 🙂
