We made it to Nashville and found our Air BnB pretty easily. Erle, our host was really friendly and helpful and showed us our room. It’s a lovely double room with kitchenette and small living room and bathroom which is in his converted garage so it has its own entrance and is self-contained. It’s only about a 15 minute drive into Nashville itself so we will explore there tomorrow.
Having arrived we thought we should try and do something this evening so on Erle’s suggestion we came down to the Grand Ole Opry which is the home of country music.
We were going to do the tour but we baulked at spending $24 each to see photos and artefacts from famous country music stars we have never heard of. So we took some photos from the outside and headed over the road for the quintessential American experience.
So we spent a pleasant evening strolling round the shops. Tom was happy as there was a Lego store for him to look round. Most coveted is the Disney Castle which they had in the window.
And now, having come all the way to Nashville, and to the steps of the home of country music, where there is a concert every night, we are off to see Bridget Jones’s Baby at the multiplex. Because America is the land of the free.
