    Beautiful Alabama with marshes-swampland and oh so loving hospitality. I being greeted not with “how are you?” But with “how do?” So authentic!:-)

    You are right! I love how you are made feel welcome even when you are just pumping gas. My son still lives there so I have good reason to visit often.

    One thing about America’s south and small (rurals that are now few) towns, they are the vital organs of America. Whether passing thru or visiting, you can feel the heartland. …when commercialism was less. How inspiring and imaginative it is to travel thru during the night, where towns are asleep. :-) …then comes the intrigue of the people and the lives. Journeys and visits can take us back in time.
