People ask me....why did you go to the South? I love southern cuisine and believe there is always something to learn from when traveling. This trip proved no less. We didn't have very much time as we went for about 5 days and needed to get to Mississippi and Alabama, and it already takes nearly a day to fly from CA. We first stopped at Ivy Green, home of Helen Keller which was quite beautiful and if you ever read about her in junior high you can appreciate the history behind it. Then off to the US Space & Rocket Center. I was not expecting groups and groups of children but apparently this is the learning place. It was quite interesting here. I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend it. I had the best pecan pie while in Alabama...and I don't even like pecan pie! Food here is awesome!
