Trip to Atlanta, GA

I was in Atlanta, GA for about a week in July this year for MGX, an internal event for Microsoft employees.

I had been to the World of Coke Museum, the Georgia Aquarium, Centennial Park and around the city.

Though late, I thought I’d share a few pictures from the trip.

On the Friday of that week, I went to Al Farooq Masjid in Atlanta for the Friday prayers and was amazed by the local Muslim community. It was a slightly different experience, compared to masjids in the Middle East (especially the baggage security check at the entrance!) At the end of the Friday prayers, I remember there was also a Janazah prayer for a person who had expired in that community.

On 26th July I took the flight back home. I enjoyed the entire trip, and it was an truly interesting experience.
