We woke up in the morning in Monterey and drove further south towards Los Angeles. We stopped at Santa Barbara for a dinner and entered City of Angels in the evening as planned. We decided to lodge somewhere in Santa Monica. We drove around the city until we have found reasonably priced motel on Lincoln Boulevard in Venice just few miles south from Santa Monica near Pacific Ocean.

We drove our Chevrolet Uplander to the LAX airport what officially has ended our road trip. We did 4987 miles or 8026 kilometers in 15 days. Once we handed back our vehicle I turned my head to take a good look at it again. Mission was accomplished, but I will miss that car. I really liked it and it was sad to leave. Piotr and Michael rented another car - Pontiac G6 as they did not want to stay in Los Angeles for the weekend. This where our story parts. I will give my account of events between 18 and 20 day of our trip and they will hopefully post their memories. We all went back to the motel and called it a day.

On the following morning me and Aneta were trying to figure out how to get from the place we were to Los Angeles downtown. Local citizens were not of much help. We caught a bus to Santa Monica city center and then another one to LA downtown. It took us almost two hours to get there! We did a long walk around downtown to see Walt Disney Hall, Mexican district, Union Station, Little Tokyo and few more. Later on we went for a dinner and after short circling around the same streets all over again we managed to catch a bus back home. It took us another two hours to get back to the motel which influenced our decision to rent a car on the next day.
