These were clicked during my first trip to the United States for a summer internship in Summer 2005.
The first thing about Atlanta which left me awe-struck was the airport. It was huge and I could see rows of planes all around. That was to be expected, as Atlanta International Airport is the world's busiest airport and also the hub for Delta Airlines.

The World of Coca Cola (Old)

The World of Coca Cola (Coke Museum) is one of the famous places in Atlanta. This has now been relocated to some other spot. Here are some pictures taken inside and outside the former World of Coca Cola. You could find the entire history about the evolution of coke and you could also taste samples of Coke products and more than twenty soft drink brands. I have no idea how things are in the new museum. The neon sign has supposedly been removed from the old building.
