These photos are long overdue. It’s already been 3 months since we came back from our road trip in the Deep South of the USA. We spent most of our time in New Orleans and the Cajun Country of Louisiana, but we also road tripped over through the whole state of Mississippi and on to the cities of Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee.
Here are some of the photos of our short time (2 1/2 days) traveling through the two cities with major musical history.

Elvis Presley’s grave, Graceland
The basement TV room at Graceland
Graceland, quite a small home for such a rich man. We felt like we were visiting the Mecca for fans of Elvis Presley.

We didn’t get as many pictures in Nashville because it was pouring rain during the majority of our time spent there. However, we didn’t let that dampen our spirits! We did manage to go to the Country music hall of fame, the Frist center for the visual arts, Third Man Records, Mas Tacos and we went out for a concert.
