Photos from week four: Savannah

Savannah, USA

Bonaventure Cemetery

Week four brought us to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil territory, the beautiful, old town of Savannah. I finally discovered an American city I would like to live in. We met up with our friend Katty and spent the week wandering around the streets of the historic district visiting mansions with fantastic architecture and languishing in shady, green parks while Spanish moss swayed in the breeze. We discovered fried pickles, had amazing breakfasts, ate fantastic tapas, drank the strongest drink ever and had afternoon tea almost every day in old-fashioned tea rooms. We spent a day out at the beach at Tybee and I got stung by a jellyfish. We had pirate try and convert us to Christianity. We spent an evening with Cthulhu, visited a multitude of spooky cemeteries and heard plenty of ghost stories. Savannah is a place I definitely need to visit again.
