The Louisville local has a version of one of the many imitators that have arisen since the Cow Parade called Gallopalooza. These sculptures are of horses with colorful and unusual ornaments. Louisville being the home of the largest equestrian event in the world, the Kentucky Derby, but horses can't be chosen. It's a nice initiative that gives some color to a rather dull city center.

Who hasn't heard of Muhammad Ali? Known early in his career by his real name, Cassius Clay, he's considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time. He later converted to Islam. Ali was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and it's here in his hometown where they've built a museum in his memory. It's intended to honor his career and its highlights, but if functions primarily as a cultural center where events and exhibitions are held. The visit will be especially interesting for those who like boxing and know Ali as a boxer. But best of all is the building that houses the museum. It's simply spectacular. The museum opened five years or so ago and is exemplary in all aspects. My son enjoyed going up and down the steps of the amphitheater outside. It's very well designed with a waterfall that ends in a fountain. For a rather gray city like Louisville, this place is a gem to have as a cultural center of its kind.
