Last summer, I took the Florida and New Jersey bar exams. Now I have to take the New York bar at the end of the month. Apparently I take bar exams for the fun of it. So, I now find myself in the throes of studying once again. I often have flashbacks to my former studying days, and it’s caused me to think of, and miss, Atlanta often. Our favorite restaurants, the mild seasons, our weekly rituals… Atlanta has a certain charm to it that, I find, is not readily apparent. Thus, just in case you live in Atlanta, happen to visit Atlanta, or are simply dying to know my favorite spots, here are a few of my favorite Atlanta things… It’s a city I wouldn’t describe as being a top vacation spot, but in terms of everyday lifestyle, it certainly tops my list.

The best word I can use to describe Luang Prabang is charming. Selected as a World Heritage Site in 1995, the city’s allure lies within its red-roofed temples, French-Indonesia architecture, and surrounding lush mountains cut by the milky Mekong river. Despite periodic rain showers, it was easy to explore the city on foot, and we were able to hit all of the major sites (well, “major” in our opinion) in one day.
