Hello from Birmingham, Alabama! If you've never traveled to the deep South of the USA, I highly recommend it. The people are incredible, the food is outstanding, and it almost feels like you're in a different country. Of course there are some sad states here - homelessness, zero sense of healthy foods or exercise - but everyone is super friendly and they have a charming simplicity to their life. I joked with my buddy saying, "It's almost like they don't have Internet here." But seriously the term "southern hospitality" is no joke, and I hope all of you get to experience the culture (and inspiring history) that this area of the country offers.
