Seeing the Georgia State Capitol, we found the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum. We were glad it was open. The ground and parking lot gave the notion of it being an important place. It was well groomed and flags were flying.
We were greeted at the door with the news that entry for veterans on Veterans Day was free!
We saw the orientation film that was excellent. One thing it described was how he was affected by corruption in a state election. He lost and the next time he ran one of his by lines was, "I will never lie to you."
I would say among his most significant accomplishments during his presidency was winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his tenacious and wise work with Egypt and Israel and reaching the Camp David Peace Accords.
The museum housed the presidential library and archives. We could see rows and rows of filing boxes. It contains 27 million pages of documents, 500,000 photos and another 40,000 objects (videos, audiotapes and films.)
We liked our tour and thought it was very well done. It is worth the visit.
Next, we found the Atlanta Underground. We weren't really sure what that was about but wanted to stop and see it. The parking was free and we wandered around a little while. It was a lot of shops and not much was going on. We might not have been in the right entry way? Or there might be a better vantage to see it. We did not stay long and headed over the downtown area in search of the Coca-Cola Museum.
The World of Coca-Cola multi-media center outgrew its first location near Atlanta Underground and we went over to the larger site near the Olympic Park.
We actually walked through the Olympic Park to get to the World of Coca-Cola.
As the sign says, it was started in the 1920's and then re-introduced in 1993. So it has been around a long time.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
