Nashville Tennessee

This last week I spent 3 days in Nashville Tennessee for a Strength Training Convention. It was held in down town Nashville close to a ton of bars all with live music. We were also a minutes walk to the country music hall of fame. The picture above is of the Batman tower, or the At&t building, but it looks like bat man. Also just across the street from where we were staying was the original Grand Ol' Opry, the Ryman Auditorium. My co-worker Josh and I decided to get the whole experiance and took the tour. I got some good pictures and it was a beautiful building.

Here is a picture of me and Mini Pearl and a man I forgot his name.

Here I am making my opening debut at the Grand Ol' Opry. (I did play a little, strum, sturm)

I thought this was a cool picture of the stage.

Here is the Hard Rock Cafe we ate there on Friday night and I was great.

On Friday after the conference we decided to look around town to see some other attractions. The number one thing to do in Nashville (as an online site said to do) is to see the Parthenon. Yep there is an actual size Parthenon in Centennial park. We could not pass this up. In side there is a small art museum and then a 44 foot statue of the Greek god Athena. It would have been an amazing sight to see back in the day when the real one was built, I am sure everyone was in awe.

Here is a full picture of the Parthenon, beautiful.

Here I am at the Parthenon ( I will post more pictures so that you can see the real scale of it)

Here is the statue of Athena, this was what was in the original Parthenon also. I had to get a picture of some one in front of it so you could get an idea of how big it really is.

I was a great trip and I am glad I got to see the things I did. We will be going next year also for our convention and I want to see the Country Music hall of fame and go to some of the music bars down town. I will post some more pictures later so you guys can see more of Tennessee.
