Transiting through Atlanta, I arrive at Savannah. The rental car process is interesting. Budget, where I rented from, is closed. I get help at the Avis counter. They give me the keys, I go outside, and there’s no security. I just drive off, and then in two days, I will have returned the car without getting it inspected.
Despite checking into the Hilton quite late, I decide to wake up early for a workout. I needed it. The Association of American Medical Colleges’ Careers in Medicine Workshop is very good. I learn a lot of good information to take back to Loma Linda. During breaks, I take the time to walk outside the hotel and visit some of the historic squares. After the sessions, I walk down to the river to enjoy the sunset and the breeze. At the Mellow Mushroom, I have a stuffed portabello with artichokes and greens for dinner.
This morning, after working out, I attend the rest of the workshops. During the morning break, I briskly walk to Forsyth Park to do some photography. I check out of the hotel during the lunch break. After the meetings, with a half hour to spare, and with GPS assistance, I go on a driving tour of the Bonaventure Cemetery. I make it to the airport in good time, park the rental car in the stall without being checked, walk in to drop my keys and get my receipt, and strolled through security to my gate. The transit through Atlanta, like last time, is hectic. I grab some quick Chinese food and finish it on this last leg of my weeklong trip. Everything has been on time. Now, I’m less than two hours from touchdown at ONT and still recovering from the mosquito attacks.
