This past weekend, Saturday to be exact, I was sorely tempted to do what I usually do on weekends: stay at home and load up on some good old R & R. That was the plan, but like every good story, there’s a twist: the day did not go as I planned. Yes, I ended up going for the 2nd “Stax to the Max” Festival in Memphis, Tennessee, with my family. I know you don’t know what “Stax to the Max” is, so you can read more about it here.
The main reason I carried my two legs outside that day was because tickets for entry into the Stax Museum of American Soul Music were selling at $1.00. You read that right: One Dollar! As a Naija babe, I no dey carry last. Except in vices and other questionable behavior. But going to the museum does not fall into that category. Plus $ 1.00 for tickets that typically cost $12.00 in my dictionary = almost free. In my case, it was free because I did not pay *dancing alanta AND azonto* And I took lots of pictures.
However, I do not have much time to upload them all today, so I shall do a teaser: Upload just 7 pictures (Yes, I counted them), which will hopefully entice you to come back to view the rest. Or not. Anyway, here are a few shots from the festival. I also recorded a mini video which I will include next time too. Enjoy!
