    Shacked up and I loved it!

    I'm a musician and totally loved being offered a complimentary acoustic guitar to thrash about whilst chilling on my shack's balcony...nice touch!
    As their website states, their shacks are real shacks and so they look and smell like real shacks. Ours wasn't offensively dirty or anything but if you're more partial to Choice Hotels' type places then brace yourself a little! It's a great experience though,

    Our shack had a TV but it only played one radio station (not sure what the deal was but didn't care, no TV for 2 nights wasn't a deal breaker for me). There was a very comfy king sized bed in our shack (Office Shack) along with an air con unit, a fridge & a microwave. Their on site bar is awesome with a performance area for guitar clubs etc. that use the place for learning (beers were VERY reasonably priced btw and a good selection too).
    They have just coffee and doughnuts for breakfast (complimentary but first-come-first-serve basis).
    If you like photography then you'll take plenty of pics of this fairly substantial & quaint premises and if you like cats then you'll love the several personable kitties that roam about the place.
    It's a 5-10min drive out of town, BUT, if you wanna go into town of an evening to have a drink and listen to some live blues, then Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club offers a handy limousine shuttle to and fro the club (fee was discretionary for us but the going tip is $5 per person each way, arrange with a member of staff at the hotel). There are a couple of taxis too but they're more expensive and probably less fun!
    If going back to Clarksdale I'd stay here again without question!

    Left Memphis via the Stax studio, birthplace of soul music. Knew we were in for treat when the sound system in their car park was playing Marvin Gaye when we arrived.

    Drove south on the Blues Highway, route 61, to Clarksdale,Mississippi. We're in the heart of cotton country, in the Mississippi delta, flat land ...

    Our pilgrimage to the Vatican

    Oops, we forgot to tell you about our trip to the Vatican. No trip to Rome would be complete without a trip to the holy city. Unfortunately the Pope was too busy to see us (and no Pope Mobile either - geesh!). The Vatican and St Peters Square and the Bascillica were spectacular. The Catholics appear to be doing quite well for ...

    ... center and asked the kind lady behind the counter where we can get a great tamale. "Doe's Eat Place." Man, they must pay a commission to the locals! We eventually get an alternative recommendation: Hot Tamale Heaven (33.39989, -91.03195).

    Hot Tamale Heaven is located in a small building with a drive-thru, small outside walk-up window, and a few picnic tables under large umbrellas. Examining a large menu nailed to an outside wall, ...

    After driving back from Memphis, we intended heading down the Mississippi, to a blues joint in Shelby called Do Drop Inn who was advertising a local band (the smaller ones seem to open from Thursdays on) Went to use my plastic and it wasn't where it was meant to be L The last time I had used it was at a drive through ATM the day before in Clarksdale ... what to do? A check on the net showed it hadn't been used. If I cancel it, I will have to some ...

    ... a pleasant sound, in keeping with the past. There's Muddy Waters' house, log-cabin reassembled in the room; there's Howlin Wolf's guitar! I wander slow, and read, and gape. A map, spread out with buttons at the edge, roads lead to Chicago, go for work, go to get your music heard, Chicago my sweet home, get on that bus and go. Push the button, hear the story, who went, and why, and when. I don't see Bessie Smith. Bessie Smith, you know, the Empress of the Blues? Born ...
