A (Southern) California Adventure I

The 6+ hour drive to Los Angeles was often straight and very flat and pretty boring. When it wasn't my turn to drive, I did some reading using the Stanza app on the iPod Touch, reading E Nesbit's Five Children and It.

We hit the usual LA spots - driving through a residential area and tada... the Hollywood sign.

The very packed and very touristy Hollywood Boulevard and its famous landmark (which we drove past).

We had a late brunch at Home in Los Feliz (no pics though). A pretty good crab cakes benedict (ie the poached eggs sit on crab cakes) and some beef hash. The neighbourhood library was holding a little sale and I snagged my very own copy of 84, Charing Cross Road for a mere 25 cents. After driving around Laurel Canyon and Beverly Hills and then to Rodeo Drive, we had a hearty dinner of Korean food at BCD Tofu House.

California Adventure - more fun than I expected!

The incredibly deceptive ferris wheel, in which some of the cars swing as the wheel turns.
