Took a local bus to Graceland and did a very professional audio tour. Found a shuttle bus that did a free loop from Graceland to several blues venues so hitched a ride to Sun Studios where nearly everyone who is great has recorded (Elvis, BB King, Jerry Lee Lewis, U2, Roy Orbison and so on) and did a tour. Then to the Gibson guitar factory, a walk down the street past all the blues bars. After lunch we did a tour of the National Civil Rights Museum situated at the hotel where Martin Luther King was shot, then rushed off to see the ducks parade through the foyer of the Peabody hotel. Had tea at TGI Friday's then a cold walk back to the hotel. Memphis uses green Melbourne trams on their historic trolley loop.
