Travel Haiku - April Atlanta - Smothering Me Too - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Atlanta april
smothering me too your warmth and
the sweet scents of azalea

Most working thermometers in Atlanta read somewhere above 70 degrees during the month of April. And with the brilliant warmth of the sun and the local azalea and dogwood trees at their fullest bloom, this month is the ideal time to visit. Even Dr. Seuss is getting into the spring spirit; the Breman Museum hosts a family-friendly exhibit of his work now through August. Or take the kids to the World of Coca-Cola plant, where they can get digital in the 3D theatre with moving seats, embrace the famous polar bear, learn basics of bottling, and get sugar-hyped from tastings of over 60 different Coca-Cola products. Fun fact: A month from this day in 1886, Coca-Cola was invented in Atlanta and first sold for five cents.
