Took a taxi to the airport as there were no trams runnng at that time and we were worried that we would not get to the airport on time. Thank God we came really really early. I mastered the e-check in and so that part was easy. What took a long long time was the security check! The queues were really long! We both had to take our shoes off and the MOTH had to take off his belt.We made it safely past security.
The flight was 6 hours on Delta Airlines direct to Los Angeles. We arrived at Los Angeles at 12 noon LA time.We knew we MUST see HOLLYWOOD! But we had bags with us that we just cannot lug around! The airport had absolutely no left luggage area. This was part of their security steps following 9/11. Luckily MAS came to our rescue and Emile as well as his son Eric agreed to take responsibility for our bags while we went to Hollywood. We had a whole 12 hours before our next flight!
We took three different subway trains/ trams to reach Hollywood an hour later but it was worth it.
We've heard so much about Hollywood, seen it on TV and now we were here!
We only wish all our GOTHs and BOTH were here too sharing the fun with us! Never mind, Insya Allah, one day we will bring them here!
We stayed for about three hours then took the subway back to the airport.
Waited first in line from 8pm to check-in at the MAS counter at 9:30pm. We were first so we got to choose our seats [ middle row, aisle for both with the hope that no one would want to sit in between us and we we right! We had the four seats to ourselves all the way home. Again security was tight and the queues were really long.
