I finally got home and the second half of my vacation vapours into past. We had a little roadtrip in the US and still suffering some jetlag. Sure was an interesting one though.
Starting from Chicago, we drove to South Bend, Indiana to see the Dropkick Murphys, and then down to (Cookeville, well... in the ranch close by) Tennessee for the Muddy Roots Music Festival www.muddyrootsrecords.com/
. On the way, somewhere in the frontier between Kentucky and Tennessee, our navigator went mental and the situation can be put as follows; "... as the dark road in the woods got narrower and narrower, and suddenly switched... not into the highway as expected, but into someone's frontyard, we could hear a shotgun being loaded and someone tuning the banjos..."
Anyway, we eventually got there. Great bands and great local moonshine. After the weekend, we continued to Nashville, Memphis, St Louis, Joliet and back to Chicago to return our rental car. Few days in Chicago (yes, I went to see "Sue" in FMNH
) and back home.
Luckily for me, the cultural shock, like the "need" for English smalltalk was softened a week before departing to US, by my wonderful buddy ~PavelKirilovich
who I had a privilage to meet live after all these years online. Thanks again, Nigel! All the best!
Now, it appears to be autumn... where did the summer go already?
