Where I stayed
Long Beach California

Flag of United States  , California
Monday, August 8, 2011

So to give you an idea of where we are staying....
Snoop Dog grew up and lived here and 2 pac rapped about Long Beach California.
Anyway, was not feeling so great when we arrived here.
Hotel ok, clean and every thing one needs for a room.
Hotel opposite train station, which is convenient as its only $1.50 to travel one way.
 When we go here, I seriously was like is this it?
I want to go home.....
Feeling much better and more appreciative of LA so I thought I would post!!!

Went to downtown LA.
Not much to report, went to Macy's and Victoria's Secret. Nice. Walked around.
Saw lots of homeless people. It mad me sad.
Plenty of homeless people board the train and ask for cash.
Gave them $5. Felt a bit awkward.

Appreciate home so much.

LA bit boring. Also did not really know like where to go? Or what the deal was.
Not much happening.

On the opposite side of the train line, there is a really nice area called 'THE PIKE' its pretty much
like Hilarys
Went to Hooters. Girls wear the skimpy tops
with their boobs out and bright orange short shorts, its pretty funny and exactly like the
movies. Had a burger and coke.
That is all you can eat here- we have discovered. Not much vegetarian. Which is worrying.
Felt sick as a dog after Hooters. Was hard to walk home... had to stop several times as felt too sick to go on.
Seams stupid I know, but it was awful.

Walmart= AMAZING. Cheap as cosmetics and everything!!
Chucks= $35 and also cheap vans in the stores which made me happy.
Have not bought much, only 2 shoes.
Jordan has found like 20 bike stores and totally checked them out.
He has already bought bike parts to send back to Aus.

Today has been the best day soo far!
Went to the Hollywood sign.
Could not really see it, as all the smog.
But I didn't care. It was amazing!!!
Also went to Hollywood Blvd and looked at all the stars in the ground.
Pretty cool.
Very busy.
They were setting up for the premier of 'Final Destination 5' and they had the red carpet rolled out, ready for the stars.

Next, was onto the movie stars house's. We passed Madonna's place, the house Michael Jackson died (which he was only renting), where they filmed Fresh Prince of Belair, Kelly Osbourne's Place, The place where they caught George Michael...... ha ha (funny as), Nicholas Cage, Lindsay Lohen, Arnold Schwarzenegger (amazing), the playboy mansion,............................ the list goes on. Houses were really great.

Then onto Rodeo Drive where they filmed Beverley Hills Cop, Pretty Women and also...........
Beverley Hills Chiuwawa (ha ha).

Next was Venice Beach and Santa Monica (Lost Boys). Venice Beach= all sorts of characters and bike rides and skate boarders and surfers and all sorts of crazy cool Californian people.
Also saw over 4 sausage dogs!! Also saw lots of other people with pets, which was great.
Got to pet lots of dogs.

Tour on the way home, when the bus brakes down. Jordan and other 2 boys jump out to push Bus off road.
Ha ha...............
Cools down for a bit, than its on the road again, hell shakey.
Did not know if we would make it back.

Made it home. Hooray.
Off to dinner.
Spanish Tapas = AMAZING.

Well that's all.
Tomorrow going to New Port Beach, OC (My favorite show ever)...
