Aujourd'hui on a repris la route pour Los Angeles!! On a mangé à Santa Barbara puis on a marché un peu sur la mer ! C'était très beau il y avait plein de palmiers et il faisait beau ! Ensuite on a roulé le reste du trajet pour Los Angeles, on est arrivé a notre petit appartement au nord d'Hollywood, il très bien et il y a tout dedans meme une machine à laver... Ce qu'est bien c'est que on est près de tout: On est à 10min du signe d'Hollywood, 8min de l'Universal Studio... Demain on va aller a Universal Studio !  
We are sleeping longer now although I still woke up at 6.30. Yesterday night I tried to find a good, cheap hotel but couldnt decide on anything. Either wrong location or too expensive. I sent 2 emails for flats but I didn't have much hope. In the morning I got answers. One was already taken but the other one was free for the time required. What a relief. At least I don't have to worry about where we will sleep. We decided to head straight for Los Angeles with a lunch stop in Santa Barbara. We got a lot of rain on the way and some sunshine. We stopped at a beautiful camp site with palm trees - Refugio state beach. In Santa Barbara we went to the harbor and had something to eat in a mexican restaurant. Elia didn't like it too much but I loved it. Chicken, prawns the lot.
We didn't want to stay much longer so we finished driving and arrived at approx 4pm in Los Angeles. Heavy traffic, 8 lanes, cars everywhere Ohlala. Thanksfully we have the GPS which finds the flat straight away. It is in a residential area and is in the courtyard of a house. The landlady was still at work so we just went in and unpacked. Later in the evening she came round and welcomed us. Very nice lady. As we were eating we heard 2 explosions (gunshots?) and she called us to reassure us, saying she had called the police. We were not worried before but now... :)  All is good, it's America after all.
Tomorrow a full day in Universal studio. Can't wait. The weather should be good.
