Georgia must-sees/must-dos: Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, seriously if you never go anywhere else ever, go there, sit at the counter and be changed. Also, a thing I did in Atlanta, at the Center, that you could totally do right now is read MLK’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. It’s long, but totally worth it. Tubman Museum of African American Art, History, and Culture in Macon.

Georgia things to skip if you’re crunched for time: Augusta, just another small town, Zunzi’s in Savannah, not sure if it was the food, or me, but I felt sick shortly after eating it…

Are there any other number related things you’d like to know? Leave me a comment below!
