Yesterday I decided to go to the Huntington Gardens and Gallery which was out in Pasadena (doesn't look far on the map!). I went for a 1 hour walking tour of Hollywood in the morning (as the only one on the tour) which was interesting to see where they film the Oscars and inside facts about it. I then jumped on the LA Metro and caught the train to Central Station and then transferred to the Pasadena train. The trains are pretty efficient although there weren't many lines (more buses then trains). In fact all the buses have bicycle racks on the front of them so if you want to ride then cycle you can! I got off in Pasadena which is like a completely different world than Hollywood. Everything was so clean and there were hardly any people on the streets. To cut a long story short, I missed the connecting bus to the Huntington so I went to a local contemporary gallery which wasn't that great, had an overpriced sandwich (remembering to tip) and caught the train back into downtown. I decided to have a little look around downtown so I went to the old Spanish quarter which was cool and past City Hall and the Walt Disney Music Centre. After such a lot of travelling I thought an early night was in order so after a few relaxing beers, I hit the sack.
Today I'm hoping to try and make it out to the Getty Centre and finalise my accommodation before jumping on the tour bus on the 15th!
