to one of the 3 remaining Saturn V rocket and believe me, it is really impressive. It is hard to imagine a crew sitting in an Apollo capsule at the top of it. amazing. (Why it looks a little bit like the leaning tower of Pisa is due to the person taking the photo)

Went to the iMax too and could have stayed there for a few more hours. However the plan was to make it to Memphis which is almost 4 hours away.

And that is exactly what happened. Arrived at the Heartbreak Hotel around 18:30.

had the ribs of course and a couple of Scotches on the rocks. Never had Scotch served in such glasses and in such quantity. I did not complain.
