Leaving the Mississippi




I'm leaving the Mississippi river today. Though I spent quite some time on this river during this voyage, thanks to some very slow loading, I do feel bad about getting out of here. In contrast to the whole of the US gulf, the Mississippi river is a beautiful place to be in. And in this time of the year, the dawns and dusks are serene. The river gently flows by and all manners of crafts make their way on it with grim determination.

Its immpossible to concieve that any type of music other then Jazz could have been born on the banks of this river.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. The US Gulf is hideously ugly for the most part, in comparison with the rest of our coasts. The Mississippi is a notable exception.
I'm looking forward to sifting through your collection of blogs. Enjoy the time at home!
