Last time I talked with Zhao Cong over the phone, he mentioned that I can just fly over and visit Atlanta during weekends since I have no time during weekdays.That triggered me initially to suggest this second reunion with college friends. With Yuan Hao coming back and Shimeng coming over, we still have four of us in US. I called bmp to suggest we three going together and they immediately responded positively. Thus, our trip to Atlanta was destined. As we met last 4th of July, this time is almost our second annual reunion, a very happy one.

Four hour's driving from WV to Columbus, then another 9 hour's driving to the final destination-Atlanta, Georgia. It was almost 4am Saturday morning when we finally arrived at Zhao Cong's apartment. After several hours sleep, sightseeing began. Zhao Cong led us through CNN where we saw different parts of live news generation coming together in one building, people on TV came into real life and I learned for the first time that news reporters actually use a word prompt to make sure of their fluency(I always assume that they are just good at impromptu.) I used to be wanting to become a journalist or news composer but CNN didn't excite me at all.That's why I think I actually didn't know myself that well. I may be wanting to be it but that may not be my dish at all. Second station is Atalanta Aquarium with their symbol being the letter"G" in the shape of a fish, very cute. This is among the world's largest aquarium and also the first one I ever visited. Their dolphin show was very impressive. It reminded me of how many efforts those trainers have spent teaching the dolphins to perform all the designated movements. And their communication links people and animals together. I was so touched at those moments. Seeing the dolphins make different styles of jumping was a lot of fun as well. They are one of the most cutest animals. Our last station-the world of coca cola, host the history and different stories associated with Coca cola. I didn't explore too much literature there as I was so anticipated to taste different flavors of Coca cola all over the world. There was maybe over 50 kinds all together. Some were really weird, some nasty, some plain, some very tasty. I though that was the best part. However, we watched a 4D movie about the magic formula of Coca cola and it was great, way out of my not-high expectation.I was a little bit scared about the fourth dimension though especially at the moment when a pistol stoke from my chair during the movie. Anyway, Coca cola was the greatest experience as I expected, not counting the dolphin show though. 

After a full day of sight seeing, we ended up eating hot pot at the China Town for dinner. I haven't tried that at any restaurants after I came to the US and of course it turned out to be fantastic. I finished all the food way out of my limit. We even forfeit our plan to drink bubble milk tea because we cannot take more...

That night, we played card games and chat afterwards. It was always good to meet someone you shared common youth days and found each other a pleasant person. You may have not met for a long time, but the time you met, he or she was still as true as the one you used to know. Time went by fast but I am still glad that we met. That connection, the fact of knowing what is going on with each other's life itself makes me feel warm. If you care about each other, you always want to know more. That night was really sweet and it went by quickly. Zhao Cong's mattress was really comfortable I have to say. And I had a good sleep on it. I will get myself one of those.

Another one way of long drive waited for us the next day. We did stop at Knoxville,Tennessee to visit Lili Zhang and Yang Tong. They are a sweet couple living in a very beautiful neighborhood. We talked for almost two hours and left eventually because of work schedule the next day. I was glad that bmp and Shimeng also met with one of their upper classmates who is also from CSU. He is a nice guy as well and treated bmp and Shimeng very well, as you can tell from the wine he bought them despite so tight visiting schedule.

We were on the way back. I and bmp were so unwilling to say goodbye but we had to as usual. Our own life needs to resume their orders and continue. We watched sunset on the car and revisited Panda Cuisine for their tasty beef noodle. My trip ended at 12am Monday. I then went to bed preparing for Monday's work while bmp and Shimeng tried another four hours heading back to Morgantown. Our reunion trip ended.

My friends, it is great to have met with you. Time was so limited but my best wishes for all of you will never end.
