Along Front Street in Memphis

Before I embarked on this walking tour, it was one of those moments of “I think the Pyramid is right around the corner from here”. It turned out to be a few blocks, but who’s counting? It was a beautiful, sunny day. Days like these usually spell “e-x-p-l-o-r-i-n-g” for me and that I did.

Here’s where I come clean and say I had seen this Memphis Pyramid before (from the parking lot) during a road trip headed back home to California in the late 90s. In that same week, I saw my 2nd pyramid firsthand — The Luxor Hotel and Casino in Sin City (Vegas). Stayed there too! Seeing the Pyramid again recently gave me goosebumps. Cool architecture does that to me. It’s the nerd in me. I can just dream I’m in Egypt, can’t I?

Afterward, I continued my 30-minute walking tour along Front Street and I photographed all the neato things I saw.

At this point I was only a couple of blocks from Beale Street; all in due time, I plan on scoring pics there too. =P
