Another wet gray rainy day in Memphis, all the better to do some updates around the WOWs! :)
Being in a new city always affords the opportunity to experience a very different perspective. The place, full of so many people, takes on a life of its own. Each city is like a person. Memphis is nicely walkable compared to a lot of American cities. And highly scenic, with the river and the sunsets and the architecture and everything.
Rock & Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Made it!!! :)
This place has lots of civil rights history, already went by the place where MLK Jr. was shot.
Supposedly a world capital of good music and food, too! :)
Right now "Forever Young" is on the air.
Lots of friendly folks here, contrary to people have said.
Hot and sunny, good riding conditions.
Rock & Roll & Blues!!! :)

Earlier this week, riding away from Nashville, a pickup truck pulls over. Offers me a place to stay for the night. We drive back to a beautiful country home. I stay a couple of nights, swimming in the river, watching the Perseid meteor showers, etc. They also fed me well and gave me an iPhone!
Rode on.
On my way to Memphis. Meeting more travelers and locals.
Rock n Roll!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
