Tennessee Travels #1

We saw tons of stuff on our trip to Tennessee including a replica of the Parthenon in Nashville...


...great music at the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman, the historically cool mother church of country music.


Then onto Memphis to see the National Civil Rights Museum.


This amazing museum is housed at the Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King Jr. was assasinated on April 4, 1968.


From the outside, the motel looks exactly as it did on that day. Inside, it's a very moving and fascinating place.
