Well, we went over to Graceland and it was quite an experience. Was it worth the entrance fee????
Actually NO! The admission was $36 per person PLUS $10 to park - that is $82 -- HOLY CRAP!!!!!
If you are a total devoted Elvis fan then maybe you won't mind the price of admission. Are we glad we went YES!!! :>)
It is all very interesting - the house is beautiful on the outside but the inside is dark and old and depressing - of course it goes back many years and has been maintained in its original state. The upstairs is not allowed to be visited - that is the Elvis bedroom and other rooms. They say it is this way out of respect for Elvis (??????)
It is a BIG BUSINESS operation - all kinds of trinkets to buy - from look alike Elvis clothing to base balls with Elvis on them - never have I seen such a commercialization of any person. Some one is making a fortune off THE KING!!!
Are we glad we went - YES!!!

Well--- tomorrow it's off to the Civil Rights Museum and the site of the Martin Luther King assignation.
Thus far, we would give Nashville a 10 and Memphis a 5
We went to Beale Street which is like the "HONKY TONK" section - Nashville's main street is sooooooo much better as far as thing to see & do and music to listen to and dives to eat in.
Well - until tomorrows blog - take care my friends.
