    Day 1.157 – Savannah treats

    While Don was working all day, I was doing the same on my laptop at home (yes, it sure feels like a home to me here, if only for a little while). Having enjoyed my time here in Savannah away from the WT Updating Room, there sure was a lot of work to be done, especially when you’ve taken hundreds of photos in a pretty place like Savannah and feel they’re all kind of special to you. It takes me most of today to put it all out there.

    If there is such a thing as a universal karma barometer (and I do believe there is), I hope that the time and effort I put in to WT counts as a sort of “counterbalance” to all the friendliness and hospitality I receive here in the US.

    Tonight is my last night in Savannah and what better excuse for going out eating with Don and Kathy.

    Sirlion, biscuit, sweet peas, sweet potato...Hmmm...

    The Sweet Potatoes Restaurant satisfied my steak hunger and then some. Now sometimes people just don’t let me pay for my stuff, and this night is no exception as Kathy generously takes care of my bill. Nick Cave was definitely in one of his gloomier moods when he wrote People Ain’t No Good, and he was not right at all. People are definitely good (around here 🙂 ).

    Having a great dinner with Kathy and Don at the Sweet Potatoes Rest., Savannah.

    Chilling at Kathy’s condo over a choc brownie + ice cream dessert that totally filled me up for the day/night/day to come.

    Delicious dessert at Kathy's house.

    I’ll be leaving Savannah tomorrow with my head full of great memories from Savannah, of memories with and of my new friends that has made my stay here unforgettable. My sincere thanks go to all you guys and girls! Without you Savannah surely wouldn’t have been the same…

    Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – People Ain’t No Good

    People just ain’t no good
    I think that’s welll understood
    You can see it everywhere you look
    People just ain’t no good

    We were married under cherry trees
    Under blossom we made pour vows
    All the blossoms come sailing down
    Through the streets and through the playgrounds

    The sun would stream on the sheets
    Awoken by the morning bird
    We’d buy the Sunday newspapers
    And never read a single word

    People they ain’t no good
    People they ain’t no good
    People they ain’t no good

    Seasons came, Seasons went
    The winter stripped the blossoms bare
    A different tree now lines the streets
    Shaking its fists in the air
    The winter slammed us like a fist
    The windows rattling in the gales
    To which she drew the curtains
    Made out of her wedding veils

    People they ain’t no good
    People they ain’t no good
    People they ain’t no good at all

    To our love send a dozen white lilies
    To our love send a coffin of wood
    To our love let aal the pink-eyed pigeons coo
    That people they just ain’t no good
    To our love send back all the letters
    To our love a valentine of blood
    To our love let all the jilted lovers cry
    That people they just ain’t no good

    It ain’t that in their hearts they’re bad
    They can comfort you, some even try
    They nurse you when you’re ill of health
    They bury you when you go and die
    It ain’t that in their hearts they’re bad
    They’d stick by you if they could
    But that’s just bullshit
    People just ain’t no good

    People they ain’t no good
    People they ain’t no good
    People they ain’t no good
    People they ain’t no good at all

    On this day..

      I think WT has great karma and you take wonderful photos, your photos of Savannah really capture the look and the feel. Looking forward to following your next stops! Best wishes.
