Day 24: Nashville, TN - Vicksburg, MS

Monday 9/25
In the morning we decided to see Graceland since it is on our way towards Mississippi. As we were guided through Elvis mention we learned a lot about him and his music. Even so I wouldn’t call myself an Elvis fan – I was glad we stopped by (All the true fans forgive my ignorance). Mid day we drive down 61 towards Vicksburg. We even went a while on SR 1 and drove through hundreds of cotton fields. This road is far of any major traffic line. We mostly cross tractors and big trucks moving the large cotton bars. This is an interesting piece of America. Unlike many farm states where people complain about their lives and express some sense of jealousness Mississippi seem to prepare them for the future. This state unlike some of their neighbor states is self-confident and forward looking. In the evening we arrived in Vicksburg, a cute little town at the Mississippi River. We looked for a very hard to find place called Cedar Hills Mansion. It is one of the oldest homes in Vicksburg with lots of history. Today it is a very charming Bed and Breakfast with a great chef and extraordinary dinner.
