For a blog about my experiences in New York, I realize there sure are a lot of posts about my travels to other states! Nevertheless, I wanted to share a few of my favorite shots from our trip with friends to Memphis, TN, and Clarksdale, MS.
Our New York pals Sascha and Diana inspired the trip; they had been down there before, so they basically planned everything out. And it was all really cool! We caught a few live blues shows; toured Sun Studios, Faulkner's house, and Graceland; visited the site where Martin L. King Jr. was assassinated; ate amazing BBQ and fried chicken; and sang songs on the porch of our "shack."
