Philadelphia - Monday May 2nd, 2011

Yesterday, was our last day in Paducah. Up bright and early and on the bus at 8am! We drove back to Nashville and our bus driver Pat (aka SweetCheeks) gave us a guided tour of Nashville. Off to Opryworld resort for lunch. This was 400 room hotel, that has been extended 3 times and now has a total of 2989 rooms!!! It is huge and very extravagant, but tasteful. A quick, yummy lunch here and a run around the complex before we were back on the bus and heading for Nashville airport. 2 hour flight to Philly on a little plane that only too 50 passengers, but it was a smooth ride. Arrived at hotel and then popped over the road to Ruby Tuesday's restaurant. Creole Talipia is what I chose for dinner. (Flake type fish with Creole seasoning).
6am Philly time and we have woken to the news that Osama Bin Laden has been killed. Not sure of the footage seen at home, but here in the US, they are celebrating like they won the world cup. I know it means a lot to them, but it is a little unsettling to an Aussie traveler. Que Sera Sera! What will be will be.

Off to pick up the car this morning and head out to Lancaster County.

Rotunda at Paducah with Jazz band.

Di from Melton is on the front right.

One of the views inside Opryworld. A skywalk meanders through the rainforest. There are millions of dollars worth of plants here and the floods last year caused $250 million damage!!!

The old glass jars that our drinks were served in at dinner at Mr. bills the night before (Waiter didn't get it when Jenny Mc asked where the tadpoles were!!)
