Memphis USA April 2017

I would like to say that Memphis, Tennessee is a place I would like to return to. The reality is, despite being brought up with Elvis's music, besides other musicians, I am not one of the biggest fans. Do not get me wrong, I think he has some excellent songs, some which I used to sing but just like any other musician he also has some not very interesting songs.

I see no reason why I should return to Memphis, a city that needs lots of money to develop it's dying industry - following a similar path where other US cities suffered a major revitalisation in the last decade. I am also disappointed with the way people speak there: no 'welcome' when you say 'thank you' but just a major 'ihi' or 'ok'.

Despite this I kind of enjoyed this discovery, probably once in a lifetime experience where you see me travelling by plane from Orlando, then crossing the Mississippi from Arkansas into Memphis - which I would recommend to everyone to do it, avoiding the city centre which seems to be more dangerous than other very peaceful US cities.

No visit to Memphis is complete without a visit to Graceland and it's vast Elvis museum housed in several buildings; where you find me filming outside the house, before travelling by car all the way towards Nashville, in this unique American discovery.

Have a wonderful day.
