Landed almost an hour early at 9.00am this morning.  The irony is that by the time we got off the plane we were later than if the plane had been on time because the airport wasn't ready for us!

Picked up the hire car - asked for a Toyota, got a Chevy.  Did NOT want to drive anything that large, so swapped it back for a Toyota to the amazement of the hire car people.
I chickened out of driving the first day - so James drove from the airport to the hotel.  Gave the hire car people a heart attack because he nearly side swiped a pole on the way out of the parking lot.. driving on the other side of the road is a very weird experience.

Managed to get to the hotel - car in one piece as were the passengers.  Hotel is in a fantastic location, walk through a tunnel and we are on Hollywood Boulevard.  Interior of the hotel slightly dodgy - hasn't been updated since the 60's at least, but at least we have free wireless!!

So - how to see Hollywood in an afternoon?
Hollywood Boulevard - check
Kodak Theatre - check
Graumann's Chinese Theatre - check
Hollywood sign - check (well, from a distance)
Accosted by dodgy people dressed as Darth Vader/Storm Trooper/Spiderman - check
