I then hoped on the free shuttle bus to do the ...
... to the real Elvis Town ... Graceland. A couple of things really strike you here. The first is that it's quite modest, sure it would have been pretty fancy and extravagant for it's time but it's no where near the size of the mansions that the modern day stars and celebrities seem to have. The second is that everything is for sale. Given the fairly modest home I have to wonder if he would have wanted something as commercial as what his home has turned in to. Perhaps ...
