Where I stayed
Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel Memphis
Read my review - 3/5 stars

Leaving Okla City just after 11 today we head east, through Arkansas then south towards Memphis. No big stops today, just driving, talking, finding Macca's for coffee & singing. I have control of the i-pod......MWAAAAAhaahaaahaa

I could fill a coffee table book with photographs of the billboards that dot the Hwy coming into towns - some are most unusual! Religion seems to have a sort of frantic, obsessive quality to it here you don't find in Australia....

When we get to Memphis around dark we find the Heartbreak Hotel, and as we get out of the car we hear music coming from speakers under the porte-cochere.....it's Elvis!
And so is everything else for the next 20 hours.
In the lobby the couch is purple and leopard print - hot! Above our beds there are large photo's of Elvis.  After checking out our room we eat fish 'n chips in the Jungle Lounge and watch the Elvis special from Hawaii in the 70's. The bartender looks like John Malkovitch. I believe he IS John Malkovitch. Graceland tomorrow, then New Orleans.
 
I sleep under Elvis tonight.
