Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
Ah, Los Angeles, land of starstruck dreams and Tinseltown magic! A waitress today could be tomorrow's starlet. Celebrity worship, plastic surgery, junkies, endless traffic, earthquakes and artificially enhanced blondes. Well not really what we saw!
This massive city with its surrounds totals 17 million people and is so spread out it's …
... I looked like Jesus.
"That's a coincidence," I tried to reply. "We have the same birthday."
This apparently was the wrong thing to say and I was put through the wringer again, including being asked to hold out my hand to see if I could keep it steady.
Somehow, I passed this test and made the plane.
Changing planes in Fort Lauderdale was, if anything, more chaotic than leaving Medellin. With five hours between planes I ...
... bag tag kiosk. After he used that, he then dropped his bag off at the bag drop and we were on our way to security.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHollywood Historic Hotel Los Angeles
Throughout our stay, there was plenty of parking - I'm already impressed. Lots a little like the tower of terror - old time pictures, fake plats - my daughter thought it was haunted. The elevator is the smallest one I've ever been in - really cool! 2x2 elevator that barely fit us and 2 bags - something to remember. Our room was good, smelled nice - and was a great place to sleep - what more do you want!
