A Week In Atlanta
I am staying at the Marriot Marquet Atlanta. This is a fabulous lush plush kind of hotel. Bang at the center of downtown. The sight from the room is awesome. The only downside is I have to share it with an unknown person.
I am here to attend a week long annual sales conference ritual that usually happens either in Florida or Atlanta. Tons of people from all over the world attend it. Unfortunately, this year the venue-choice went to Atlanta. Guess my luck must've had something to do with the dice not rolling the Florida way. I always saw Atlanta as an insignificant part of the US. Not known for anything special other than a rumor of there being a Saravana Bhavan here and having a world renowned Aquarium. Speaking of which, I have to find out if the former is true.
Since tons of people from my company are flying out to Atlanta today, it was funny to be in a plane full of people who work for the same company. Felt like being on a school bus.
