Travel Story «Los Angeles - City of Angels»

United States | 0 Comments 25 February 2008 - Last Update 03 March 2008

It was my second visit to L.A. but it was the first time Nicki was introduced to this sprawling metropolis, city within cities, it is a huge place. We stayed for a couple days close to Hollywood by Sunset Ave. The weather wasnt the greatest but we did enjoy one and another. We were fortunate enough to be part of the Oscar atmosphere and saw a lot of preparation, including the roll-out of the Red Carpet. We did not see any of the stars. They were all preparing I guess for their big night. Next time we might consider staying in the Four Seasons or the Beverly Hills Hotel if we really want to get up close and personal. No, we concentrated on touring the city, at lovely food at the Grand Central Market downtown and walked, walked a lot. One day I had the brilliant idea of walking from Hollywood to Beverly Hills, forget it, it is way too long. Unless you prepare to walk a marathon, you´re okay then. Amazing thing in L.A. is that mostly where we were, we were the only white caucasians... funny because usually in cities like NY or SF, hispanics, Afro Americans, Chinese, they are mostly within their neighbourhoods, but not in Los Angeles, this is America, the Melting Pot.    kurt
