{The lobby}
     Atlanta and coke go hand in hand...and not that coke (or at least I hope not). I am talking about Coke, the refreshment. Although up until 1903, Coca-Cola did contain around 9 milligrams of cocaine per glass...hmmmm, wonder why they didn't tell us that on the tour? So while we had visitors last week, they had a request to do the World Of Coca-Cola tour and since we had heard good things about it and had never been, we decided it was the perfect time to go. I won't bore you with the details but we did learn a good bit about the history of Coke, took some goofy pictures and got to taste 60 different types of Coca-Cola beverages. For me, the tasting was the best part of the tour not because I love Coke but because of Beverly. Who is Beverly you ask? Well Beverly is not a who, it is a what...and a bad what at that. Beverly is an Italian soda made by Coke that was absolutely terrible, kind of tasted like a few aspirins dissolved in fizzy water. We spent 25 minutes tasting all 59 flavors and then another hour just watching people try the Beverly and gag, it was an entertaining end to the tour. Sorry Italy, but you got a raw deal.
