L.A has been quite tiring because it is so spread out. We spent three hours trying to get to Universal Studios. Had a really good time there though. We went on a studio tour where we saw where jaws was filmed, psycho and desperate housewives.
We also went in some special effects studios including where backdraft was filmed. As its a theme park we also went on a ride called 'the mummy' and 'jurassic park' which had a huge vertical waterslide at the end where we got soaking wet.
Yesterday we went into Hollywood and walked the walk of fame.
We decided to take a bus tour to the hollywood sign which was good and we took some pics.
We then had another wander down hollywood boulevard where we were given tickets to be in the T.V audience at a live taping of an american show called 'talkshow with Spike Fereston' It was a pilot show for fox t.v. As neither of us had been in a studio audience before we thought it would be a laugh so we went along. Tom Green was the guest (never heard of him). Anyway we had to do lots of clapping and cheering nearly the whole way through and all we got in return was sweets. It was quite tiring in the end.
We decided to go out on 'Sunset strip' in the evening for a few drinks which was good.
Today (our last day) we headed for the beach to sunbathe , longbeach to be exact. After that we headed for santa monica beach and went in the sea too. this was meant to be a relaxing day however for the first time ever we lost the car. I climbed all ten flights of stairs to look on every level for the car but it wasnt there. We got to the point where we thought it must have been stolen and we were about to phone the police when we looked around the corner and realised it was parked at the car park next door! Wot idiots we are!
Since then we have had a look around the shops on third st promenade and are about to go and drop the car off and get a flight to chicago and then ENGLAND! L.A was good but it takes ages to get around.
Hope its not too cold in england! See you all soon hope youve enjoyed the blog!
