We drove down back roads around Oxford, stopping every once in a while to snap or pick wild flowers. Mississippi, for all I've heard about it, is a beautiful place. Rolling fields reminiscent of mid-western landscapes of Iowa by Grant Wood dominate the rural landscape, between cotton fields and helplessly overgrown weeds (and strip malls).
A memorable spot was Taylor Grocery & Restaurant in Oxford, MS. Located in a small square, Taylor Grocery is connected to an abandoned building filled with miscellaneous objects. This is my kind of place: unyielding to modern comforts, authentic, and serves killer catfish to boot.
