Andre in Atlanta: Praise thy shopping gods!
The one and only thing that I was supposed to bring back was a National Geographics map of Costa Rica. We can’t get those in Canada. During a lull in “interesting” presentations, I hopped on MARTA and went North all the way up to Perimeter Mall. I mistakenly thought that the REI would be there but I found out that I had to walk an additional 20 min under the scorching sun. Once I got there, all I saw were maps of the South-East and US national parks. Despondent, I walked around the store while waiting for the AC to cool me down. Upon my return to the map section, I noticed a capital C sticking out from behind a map of Yellowstone. I pulled it out and fell on my knees, the only map from outside the US was exactly the one I was looking for.
