Nashville, TN '07 Part One:

Hello funseekers!

Updates are coming a bit more quickly while I'm on Spring break. The Comfort Inn here has free wireless internet. I'll try to do daily updates along with blurry cell phone photos.

Well here we are in Nashville Tennessee after having endured a 20 hour bus ride where it rained across 6 states (maybe more, I slept through a lot of it). We watched a couple movies but mostly it was watching the scenery go by. We visited some lovely truck stops in various places I've never heard of and at breakfast at a breakfast buffet place called "Shoney's" somewhere in Virginia this morning.

The most striking thing about Nashville is how much it is like Calgary during Stampede. Everyone is wearing cowboy hats and listening to country music. We visited downtown a little bit and saw some people play country while having some Tennessee BBQ and washing it down with sweet tea.

Here's a pic of the Gaylord center. It's right downtown just like the Saddledome is. It's looking like it's going to be Flames vs. Preds in the first round of the playoffs this year.



This is is the entrance to Rippy's, the bar/restaurant we had dinner at tonight.













Mmmmmm... BBQ.....














This is the Warner Records/BMI building which we'll be taking a tour of and having clinics and workshops at for most of the time here in Nashville, that starts bright and early tomorrow morning. More updates to come!

-George.

Hi George - So Nashville feels like home? I am dying to get away - I went home (Regina) last weekend on a whim, but it did not quite satisfy.. Think I gotta get someplace new soon... MAybe over my 9 day semester break... Take lots of pictures, and have lots of fun. Say Hi to Matt for me! Hey, before you know it, semester will be over for you and we'll be back to rocking the bee's summer style!!!! (Don't pretend like you're not going to work there..) Well, nothing too much going on here - just wrapped up my last midterm, then finals start in about 4 weeks... Ugh. But I'll let you go now, love you lots, Melissa
