Taken in Memphis, 2002
Ashpanaz (Elena's sister) and I went to Memphis a couple of years ago for a grand adventure. We were on our way to the Treasures of the Tsars exhibit when we passed this sign...
And were instilled with tons of confidence about the breezeway we were walking under. Lesson about travelling - the distance that appears on a map always appears shorter than it actually is. Our hotel was just a few blocks from the exhibit. We would walk... and 45 minutes later we got there. But we were able to point out all the places along the river where Tom Cruise was when he shot The Firm.
Memphis is also where I made my public belly dancing debut. Always fun to surprise the dancer with what you know. :)
