Tennessee Travels #2

While in Memphis, we had to go to Graceland!

Much of the interior was fancy shmancy but not as grand as one would expect.

There were rooms and rooms of accolades and gold records...

...and other rooms full of silver and mirrors and old TVs (which were brand new in the 1970s) all over the place.

And of course, the famous Jungle Room didn't disappoint. Lovely and tacky!

Elvis, his parents and grandmother are buried in the Meditation Gardens, which face a reflecting pool at the back of Graceland.

Everywhere you looked, there were testaments of love from fans. I think this one said it best.

Wow, that jungle room! But I like the piano and the peacock stained glass best.

Fiora and I loved the Billiard Room!
