From Mazatlan, we flew to Mexico City and had a spectacular time waiting eight hours for our next flight
We got into LAX, rode a bus over to the international terminal, and were through in the time it took to stamp our papers. We could easily taken a backpack of weed through customs for all they cared. After repeated cell-phone consultations, J.W. and Julianna finally found us amid the bedlam that is LAX.
J.W. lives nowhere near LA. It doesn't look that far on the map, but it sucks. Basically, any time we wanted to go on an outing, we had to drive for over an hour to get anywhere. It would suck to live down here. Big time. At least they have a/c in their vehicles.
We spent a day at Venice beach watching the freakies, wandering around, and taking in street shows (ie a juggler on a high ladder and a group of break dancers). After the calm of the beach in Sayulita, Venice beach was insane. It doesn't seem like a relaxing time to sit around with so many other people.
We dined at Pink's hot dogs, a LA institution since 1939. They have about 40 varieties of hot dogs and sausages. Tasty. J.W. had the chili cheese dog, while Andrew had the Chicago and New York dogs. Julianna and I had Polish sausages. Cheap meal.
Sunday we attempted to go to dim sum in Chinatown. We got there a bit late in the day, and they were closed until dinner
Other than that, didn't really accomplish much, other than a lot of time spent looking out the car window. We went and saw both Nacho Libre and The Break-Up. Nacho wasn't as good as Napolean Dynamite, but still funny.
We're flying back to Boise tonight, then on to McCall tomorrow. See you there if you live there! Oh, and we still haven't written the Lists Entry, but we will get to it...
