We joined Rob and Nia on the Thursday and headed to the Peabody Hotel for a party on the rooftop. The Peabody is a hotel for the rich and twice a day they have the duck march, where about 5 ducks would walk down the red carped and people would cheer. It was pretty pathetic in all honesty, but the action on the rooftop was fun with bands playing and good views of the city.

By Friday, me and Luke were desperate to leave the homeless shelter but had also decided to stay for Memphis music festival, so we sent some begging couch surf messages. Fortunately we got hosted by a really nice normal couple, who cooked for us, looked after us. Margaret and her husband Yerka, a very proud Czech guy exiled in the US took us down to the festival where we saw Macy Gray, Ludicris and Ke$ha ate corn dogs.

 Festivals being festivals and us not having a phone I managed to lose the guys, and stupidly didn't take down the address of the new place. Not being able to get a cab for a long time prompted me to direct the one I found to the only address in Memphis I could remember, and would probably never forger.  "1577 Union Avenue please drive". The door was open as usual..I was back at the doss house. 

An early morning facebook rescue message sent out to the boys and thankfully I was out of there by 10am.
