What a sad town

... go off in the house, she announced to all that it was a stupid question but she must answer all questions, even stupid ones.

We left 'port' at 1.00pm to music on the calliope (as per usual). I kept meaning to watch the calliope being play but never got around to it.

There's no escaping heart attack food down here! We find out lots about the town in an interesting shop called Cat Head Delta Blues and Folk Art. In the 70's it was definitely more depressed but is undergoing somewhat of revival due to the Blues Trail and places like ...

... which was much like the I55. Miles and miles of flat arable land with no relief. I think that's what you call 'big sky' landscape.. Every now and then there is evidence of the wealthy plantation style of housing, although still called plantations they are now enormous farms with massive irrigation vehicles and crop spraying aerodromes.

I got to Clarksdale about 12 and had a wander round the "Delta Blues Museum" this was well worthwhile, not only because I was bursting, but ...
