Day 11, Part 1: Jackson, Mississippi…The End

8 May

ROAD TRIP

I awoke at Motel 6 under an orange bedspread, very confused about where I was. This was starting to happen a lot- I never knew where the hell I was when I first woke up!

Too many cities…too many beds.

After getting my bearings, I showered up, we packed the car (at this point we could pack a car in 1 minute flat- we were like machines) and set off to continue on our adventure.

Can I be honest about something? I wasn’t a big fan of Jackson, MS. I think one of my readers said it best in a note she wrote to me yesterday-

“The only thing I liked about Jackson, MS was leaving…”

Hahahaha. This really got a laugh out of me. But, in all seriousness, she’s kinda right. I’m not saying Jackson is horrible. I’m just saying when you are going to amazing cities like Memphis, New Orleans, Charleston and Austin it kinda falls a little flat.

Geez somebody in Jackson now probably hates me…

 Before we left Jackson to head to Memphis (which was probably one of my favorite cities on the trip so get ready for lots and lots of Memphis posts), we drove around downtown Jackson to see a bit more of the city.

My favorite moments from our drive-

{The trees at the The Fairview}

{this celebrate Jesus sign…it just screams party doesn’t it?}

{Brent’s Drugs- It has been there since 1946 and was also a location used in the movie “The Help”}

{The blue skies with flags in front of The Jackson Courthouse}

Afterwards we stopped at Julep for one last Mississippi meal. This was the meal I fell in love with southern biscuits and fried green tomatoes. In my everyday life (when I am not touring America with my best girlfriend), I don’t eat biscuits and now I know why! They are too buttery and too delicious to have on one’s list of appropriate things to eat everyday! I do realize that my introduction to them were in the south and they may never be this good ever again.
