I met Renata at a Revolution concert at First Avenue (Minneapolis) in September 2016. She is from the United Kingdom, and since that memorable concert celebrating the life of Prince, she has visited Minneapolis numerous times. She wanted to visit Graceland, so a road trip was in order. My other companion was Lori, one of the kindest women I have ever met, and have the privilege of working with every day.
We departed from IndiGO (my place) with coffee in hand, and hit the road. We traveled through three states (Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri).
Our main goal on day one was to get to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. We did. However, as we walked up to the ticket booth she closed the door. We missed it. Ugh. But the arch is truly spectacular, so we just enjoyed the view from the ground.
We ended the day at an Art Fair in St. Louis.
