We’ve just landed in Los Angeles International Airport. We step out for some air and do a bit of car-watching while we're at it. We've been in transit for the last 17 hours and have another six hours before we depart for Nashville for the Global Dynamic Press Launch of the seventh-generation Lexus ES. Why Nashville? I haven't been to the place, so I'm intrigued.
After going around Nashville the next day, it gives you an idea why: It’s vibrant, it's an up-and-coming city—the fastest growing city in the US in the past few years, I'm told. They even jokingly call it "Nash Vegas." Like the new Lexus ES, this city boasts a new level of dynamism.
