Weekend in LA
Day 1 : Breakfast at Paradise Cove, Malibu, watched a few wild street performances at Venice Beach, went to Hollywood Boulevard, drove around Sunset Boulevard, walked along Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, attended a dinner party where I was the guest of honour!
Day 2 : Universal Studios, Shopped at Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, watched sunset at Santa Monica Peir.
Interestingly the most fun I had on the trip was the dinner party, meeting new people and getting to know their views on the city. Most of them sympathized with me because I lived in Utah. I don't really mind, coming from chaotic B'lore the peace and quiet of Salt Lake City is suiting me. I guess I now finally got a glimpse of the real America, it is pretty but maybe only from a distance. Will try to visit LA one more time before I leave. Finally a line I came up with 'LA is what Mumbai could have been and Bangalore should have been'. Whatever that means.
