Where I stayed
By midday the temp had hit the high 20's but i was not feeling it as the cool air was making it pleasant to drive. OH what a mistake. When i stopped for lunch i could just see the start of my arms going red. No worries i thought only a few more hours and a bit of after sun would do the trick
Along the way i have noticed allot of names of rivers. At home we have the Thames or the Avon etc. Here they have names like Beaver dam Swamp or Old mans Creek. That is what we are missing back home. Real names not boring ones. We need more swamps back at home.The closest we get to a swamp is a muddy field in April.Can u imagine living next to the Old Thames swamp or Torrent Trent creek. Will just give them a bit of an edge..
I got here bout 4pm and just looked like a typical American town. Lots of traffic lights,fast food outlets and car sale lots
Now being a bit of a Tesco freak, i like to look around them back home, i hoped Wall-mart could live up to Tesco's high standards. God this place was amazing. It made Tesco's look like a corner shop.It was like a giant Aladdin's cave. I was in heaven. I spent 2 hrs marveling at its array or bargains and choice of stuff. But all i brought was a MP3 player and a battery charger. I think i was just in shock by its size and could not appreciate the marvel of this huge church of shopping.So now i am going to try and visit a Wall-Mart in every town i visit. Sad i know but we all have or little quirks.
Well after getting something to eat i headed back to the hotel to play with my new toy and get ready for the next day. Glad i put the after sun in a bucket of ice cause by now i was as hot as a jet engine and bright as a red traffic light. Also for you all following my poo story i had no problems flushing todays but i have noticed a change in texture.Only by sight not by touch or smell.Must be something to do with my diet of burgers, chips and root beer.Oh and the 30 fags i am smoking a day.
