Coke Museum

We finally made it to the Coke Museum, almost a year after moving here.

First, we went into a room filled with Coke memorabilia and signs.

A tour guide pointed out different signs from the past and explained what they were and why they were significant.

There were lots of hands-on exhibits. 

This one let you 'mix' different taste components (or something).

The vault where the secret recipe of Coke is kept (or so they said....)

An old soda fountain counter

The little bottling assembly line. This is where they bottled the coke that they give you as you leave the museum.

The tasting room. Here you can taste all the different drinks from around the world made by the Coke company.

Going Down in Flames

Well, we didn't exactly go down in flames, but a few minutes after take-off, my flight from New York had smoke coming from the back of the cabin and supposedly had some sort of oil collecting on the floor.

The stewardesses looked completely freaked out and were nearly running back and forth doing something and were secretively whispering to each other.  We quickly flew over the ocean and dumped any excess fuel then made an emergency landing at the nearest airport.  It was one of those times when you think to yourself, "I wonder if I'm about to die."  Needless to say, I survived, no one was injured and we had a long delay while they tracked down another plane, but I made it home safely.

When we landed, we stayed on the runway as we were surrounded by fire trucks and police cars that examined the exterior of the plane then eventually boarded it to inspect.

Other than that, I had a good time in New York attending a conference for work.
