1st stop - Nashville, TN
We begin our stops in Nashville, where we were upgraded at our hotel, and ended up on the top floor...not a bad start! And after a tornado watch was lifted, we walked the streets. We visited the Coyote Ugly...not quite like the movie, but there was that one chick that shined. And then we were off to more bars. In Nashville we met David...a handsome bartender that nearly stole my heart with a blob of ketchup, a knife, and a fry. I'm pretty sure David will be part of jokes for years to come.
The famous, and never boring Beale Street. I can honestly say I fell in love with Memphis. Before leaving I thought I'd love Nashville...but hands down, Memphis has been my favorite stop. Perhaps if we decide to pick up and move again, it'll be to Memphis. I think we visited almost every bar on Beale Street. There was live music in almost every one! Here, I danced back to back songs with a complete stranger, in a bar where no one else was dancing, while literally everyone, including the band watched. I would normally be too shy, and reserved to do this...but, why not! I didn't even know how to dance to the music, and I'm pretty sure a little salsa came out (I am Puerto Rican after all), but somehow it worked. He'll never read this, but I thank you for those dances Derrick!
And the adventure continues...
