Dixie Stampede

Another warm and sunny day. The warmest so far (78F).

We had a relaxing day spent shopping in the Florida Mall, which is about six miles from our hotel. We also visited the factory outlet shops at the bottom of International Drive. The combination of cheap US prices and a great exchange rate (almost $2 for £1) means that the prices are absolutely brilliant.

In the evening we went to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, which is a sort of dinner and show. I write, "sort of" because it's Western-style - which means that you get your dinner on your lap and your drink in a can. It was mostly Good Ol' Boy stuff with lots of American flags on display - and I didn't hear a single non-American voice. But it was good fun and nobody took it too seriously.
