I was expecting Country music in every little restaurant, cowboy hats, short shorts paired with cowgirl boots and lots of sparkles… and I was not disappointed. I had so much fun in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (and Juliette still rolling her eyes – please Mum, could you be less excited). I did not buy any boots though as I don’t wear shorts. But I don’t know how long I will hold on, I think there’s a pretty big boot shop in Orlando.
Nothing excessive! Elvis’ solid gold Cadillac – Oh so kitsch Dolly Parton’s dress – White feathers and glitter, again nothing excessive – flowers-everywhere-and-on-my-butt scene costume!
Random guy reciting the Bible – a few interesting Tshirts (the bottom left reads ‘Keep calm and carry guns’) – short shorts/short dress and cowboy boots – my lonesome cowboy
Sunday, we decided to explore the countryside and drove up to Old Mulkey Meeting House State Park in Kentucky. I always enjoy a road-trip and honestly we did it in style – did I mention that we rented a pick-up truck (a bit over the top?). I spotted several barns ornamented with barn quilt (check out the Kentucky Quilt Trail Project). The landscape reminded me a bit of my home countryside, very hilly, very green, small herds of cattle.
And finally, Monday after a morning of revisions (Biology and Chinese), we went and had lunch at Puckett’s in Franklin: good food, great atmosphere, pretty little old town centre!
Do you really have to go home?!…
Oh! can we keep the truck?
