The temperature has lifted and it was quite warm, as we made our way to Elvis Presley's home, Graceland. It's basically a Theme Park dedicated to the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Amazing how much money he had even from an early age. He bought Graceland when he was 22 in 1977, for the sum of $100,000. Today the entire money-making machine is owned by Lisa-Marie, his only child and a singer in her own right.

|Even the Racket Ball Room has been converted into a Trophy Room|
|Elvis is buried next to his mother and father in the grounds of Graceland|
But the most famous car in his collection is his pink Cadillac which he gave to his mother, because she favoured it.
We had a bite to eat in the Diner in a typical 50s booth.
