Traveling Through the Post: Memphis, Tennessee

One of the benefits of pen-palling is learning about different places from the comfort of home...or the coffee house, or the park, or wherever letters might be read. Today's post office find told me a little about Memphis, Tennessee. Like its ancient namesake, this Memphis boasts a pyramid. Tennessee's pyramid is, according to Wikipedia, by some measures the tenth tallest pyramid in the world. Just how many ways are there to measure a pyramid anyway? Write me if you know. I'd be interested to learn.

 My correspondent will be traveling there by train. I love train travel. I traveled across the country once by train and it was a great experience. I've never seen so much of the country as I did then. Sadly, I missed much due to nightfall and sleep. I would love to do it again, this time with Mr. Duffy.
