Memphis is the Capital of Tennessee and is, together with Nashville, famous for its Music industry. That was why on my first visit to Memphis I visited a famous spot in music history: Graceland, home of Elvis Aaron Presley who was born on the 8th of january 1935 in a tiny "shotgun" house in Tupelo Missisippi.

Together with these colleagues I made the visit to Graceland. Together we had a lot of fun there.

The weather was foggy and sometimes with a bit of rain. So it gave graceland this romantic atmosphere in the mist.
