Things to remember from Nashville include: family style Southern dinner at Monell's -- literally (you sit at a table of 10 or more people, they bring out the food, and everyone passes it around); deep fried Cajun at Wilma Kaye's (the hush puppies were divine!); lively Irish music at Mulligan's, a favorite hangout of my brother's; visiting the full-scale replica of the Parthenon (didn't get inside, though, too many field trip munchkins running around -- I just sat on the steps and communed with Athena from a distance); music and comic shopping at The Great Escape, a used everything store that Bro calls "the eighth wonder of the world".
Then Sunday we went up to Mammoth Caves in southern Kentucky. A great experience -- we went almost 400 stairs (Bro counted) down a sinkhole, walked steadily uphill through an older, drier cavern, and then saw the Frozen Niagra flow wall formation, which was really impressive. I stupidly forgot to bring a camera, so I hope I get a chance to look at SiL's pictures.
Okay, back to real life now.
