We're traveling about in a huge American mini van with a trailer for all our bags and tents in the back, it reminds me very much of the thing we rented when I went to Florida back in the day, with tinted out windows and air-con. We pretty much left L.A. straight away and headed down the freeway to San Diego where we're stopping for two nights. We went up to a War memorial look-up before getting down into the city and man it's huge! Cities are just so vast here, all laid out in grids with all their different blocks, it's weird! After that we cruised on down to Pacific and Mission Beach where I tried an America fav- burito's (to be honest it wasn't that great but I did only pay $2.50!) and then wondered down alongside the beach for a while. Just before we got on the van we spotted a Cold Stone ice creamery (just like a Cold Rock from Australia) and I just couldn't resist one. I had a "mud-pie" which was a goregous blend of coffee ice cream, oreo cookies, pecan nuts and coffee syrup, yummy!
We've now just got into our hostel for the night, which has free internet - so check facebook for pics as it doesn't have the plugin to load on my blog, so expect some more updates and tales.
Off to see a typical American baseball game tomorrow, and all for a mere $15! woohoo.
