I have been away from sunny Florida for some days. North Carolina is about 12 hours driving from Tampa, so we stopped in Savannah GA in our way up and down. It is funny that even when we were heading north our destination is known as "the South" (!)
The states referred as "the South" are the Confederate states, which during the American Civil War, wanted to separate from the Union and wanted to continue with slavery.
It was a nice and short trip, we walked around historic downtown in Hillsborough and Chapel Hill and found some really nice places like the Eno Gallery, which was showing a very interesting exhibit,
Eno Gallery. Current Exhibition: Totems and Talismans
