Greeting people with "hey"
Here it is a local custom to greet people you meet by saying "Hey". Then following that is " How are you today?" and maybe a little something about the weather. Here - we talk to each other. That means in the store, at the gas station, in the restaurant, at the grocery store and any person you may meet. We say "hey" - not 'Hi" or "Hello". We are slower here than up north - so if you come here from - say - NYC - you better be ready to slow down. Its just the way things are! Also - people all go to church on Sunday and dress up. If you go out on Sunday - you will see people in Sunday clothes. Also - Wed. are big church days - actually - evenings and esp. in Durham people get off early to attend church on Wed. evening.

Grab some coffee
As with most college towns, coffee shops do a brisk business with students cramming for exams and needing all the caffeine they can get. This is a shot of the Carolina Coffee Shop that's been around since 1922 on Franklin Street.
