I get to meet a lot of people because I frequently move in and out of projects at work. Which is a good thing you might say but it is also increasingly difficult to keep up the friendship. The last time I made best friends was in Hyderabad, almost four years back. And only one later, no wait four more in the last four years. I need more best friends, not just friends.

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.

This place has been kind to me so far. I've settled in. I've made friends. I have fun, sometimes I think way too much. I am lucky. Lucky to have a job in these times. Lucky to have found the people around me. Lucky to have gotten this opportunity. I am thankful. I really am.
