Checked out of the hotel at 12pm and drove across St.Louis, filled up with petrol opposite the Anheuser Busch Brewery, home of Budweiser and the largest brewery in the world. It gives free tours every 15 minutes.

Carried on driving along the I-55 and stopped at Jackson for lunch and a quick shop at Wal-Mart where I bought a Playstation Portable out of my Casino winnings. We drove through Missouri and Arkansas until we reached Memphis in Tennessee, we checked into the Marriot Hotel in the city centre. It happens to be Elvis Week this week and it is 28 years ago on the 16th that he died. We spend the next couple of hours doing all our washing and then walked down to Beale Street which is full of Bars with live Blues bands playing.
