Hm. Maybe whoever designed the "North" and "South" towers here in CNN Center was originally from Sohlodar! ;) (See,+Atlanta,+GA+30303&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=43.664131,64.248047&ie=UTF8&ll=33.758188,-84.394419&spn=0.00281,0.003921&t=h&z=18 . The "North tower" faces Andrew Young International Blvd, while the "South tower" faces Centennial Olympic Park Dr. Successful navigation within the building requires realigning oneself to these faux cardinal points, so that you know which way to go when you get off the elevator to get to, e.g., my office on "8 Southeast".) -- Mark J.
