America - Day Two We are in Memphis tonight. We didn't drive as far, but, we are REALLY wiped out. Sun Records is cool, really cool.[More:]To actually stand in the room, and look at the ceiling baffles and acoustic tiles that were on the walls when Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee, etc...recorded the earliest rock and roll? That was wild.

Miko, I should tell you that I think for a few hundred miles, I did fall into that trap. I climbed out though, and of course, knowing so many of you mechazens has given me one view of who some Americans are!

Oddly, perhaps, we turned on the TV in the hotel room tonight, there is a documentary on CNN about MLK. I had forgotten that he was killed here. Man, what a city, the birth of rock and roll, the death of MLK.

I am very tired again, and I wish this hotel had a pool/whirlpool, but the bed's comfy and soon I shall fall asleep.
Amazing! The shrine!

Have fun & keep updating!

PS, richat, tonight I learned about a new awesome musician -- Lynn Miles. Looks as though she's been a lot better known in Canada for years, but I have never encountered her music before. Awesome stuff!

OMG, visiting Sun Studio is a religious experience, isn't it, richat? It's been years since I was there and I still get butterflies thinking about it.

I saw what you posted in my Nashville thread about the wreck on the highway- yeesh! Here's hoping neither of us see any more of that tomorrow.

I don't know how I managed to miss your posts on this trip. I'm jealous. Travel safely!
