My Roadtrip: An Aussie in America Days 18 and 19

Sunday 10th November 1996

Waverly Tennessee to Hannibal Missouri

We spent the day visiting Mitzie and Mishelles family, who were very welcoming to this Aussie! It was wonderful to meet these Americian families whose hospitality was so inviting....

We drove alot of the day, onwards to Mitzies town of Hannibal, Missouri, boyhood town of Mark Twain.

Hannibal Missouri

Slept in today, I felt much better after coming down with a cold on my travels. Visited Walmart, yes I was actually THERE! and put all of my films in to be processed. Remember people, digital cameras were not the thing those days...

I met some of Mitzies friends and co workers and actually felt quite the celebrity! We did some shopping and just hung was really really nice, and a change of pace from the tour I had just finished.
