Something tells me we're not in Kansas any more, Toto

This was the first thing I noticed when we landed in Memphis. Interestingly there wasn't a similar sign on the men's loos, I mean washrooms, I mean conveniences. Maybe that's where the severe weather comes from?

The second interesting thing I saw was a policeman on a bike. Inside the terminal building. But he was armed, so I didn't photograph him. See, I'm learning caution.

The rest of the things I've seen in Memphis were un-photoworthy. You've seen one shopping mall, etc.

Woah! That's really funny, kind of. I saw a policeman on a bike in Rotorua, but he certainly didn't have a gun.
