My first day I complained about the lack of historical architecture. By the second, I was swearing I'd live there right away.
Day 1: Wednesday, August 16: arrived LA @ 11:00 AM. Got to friend's apartment around 1:00 PM. We went to this great coffee shop/ vegan lunch spot called Muse. I wanted to go there everyday forever. For those of you from Mobile, it was my Satori coffeehouse. Forever a place in my heart.
That night, we ate some good Indian food and hung out with some new, but very dear friends who live in LA. He is a professor @ USC. She is a public librarian. They absolutely rock.
August 17: I met my cousin who I haven't seen in about a decade in Hollywood. We walked and talked all the way to Amoeba records...the greatest music store of all time. I have to say that Hollywood is way more glamorous on television. I was not impressed.
August 18: First to Los Angeles County Museum of Art. AMAZING! Here's proof:
me in spaghetti.
There are multiple buildings and outside spaces that make up LACMA. There is even a hanging Boulder outside! One of the buildings housed a Japanese exhibit, which I felt a need to enter due to the recent relocation. Here is me posing with some Shinto festival masks:
Next was Griffith Observatory Husband and I drove to the top of some hills to visit this amazing space center...full of cosmological and scientific wonders! me outside:
me with Einstein:
homage to Pluto:
Next to Santa Monica beach, where I finally got to dip my feet in the Pacific:
Favorite Hippie things I did in LA:
did yoga here
Love to all on this beautiful planet!
