Next morning we went straight to Knotts Berry Farm and rode loads of roller coasters - they were fantastic. Photos are attached so take a look.
So here we are on the mainland of the USA - flying over LA at night is amazing. We arrived at 9pm and picked up our hire car. Driving to our motel was an experience - the drivers in LA are nuts. No indicating and just weaving in and out of traffic like demons. We made it in one piece though. Having said that, I did have an incident with the pavement - on the way out of a 7-eleven I tripped over in the car park while holding two bottle of water - I went down like a lead balloon and managed to land on one of the bottles of water and scraping the same knee that I ruined in both Australia and New Zealand (Charlotte, you'll be interested to know this is the same knee that you baulked at and called custard at work).
