It's also been thanksgiving here in the states. I have extended family in Atlanta, so I headed there for the national holiday. Jackie and Jay, my cousin's parents in-law, fed, watered and entertained me. So a huge thank you to them. Jay also showed me round Atlanta - the spiritual home of Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement.
Thanksgiving is a huge holiday in the states. Families get together over large meals, and the lack of religious connections makes it accessible to everyone. It's like the UK's Christmas, but without the Goddy bits.
I took some pictures. Here.
I also left my camera to Naomi, my cousin's youngest daughter, for a little bit. She took these great snaps, and she's only 4! Here.
