Beaches, Beverly Hills and Bums
Aug 17, 2013
! Next stop was Venice beach. I've heard lots of things about Venice beach but what no one tells you is how filthy it is! I literally saw a bum who had shat his pants- not just shat his pants, like shat his pants, sat in it and it had gone and dried all crusty all over his shirt which suggests it's been there a while! Disgusting! I was asked for money by about 100 hobos. I can't even work out the coins here and even though there is only like 4 of them they are all pretty small. Watched the skating in the skatepark for a while and there was some talent there! The whole place smells like weed cuz you can get medicinal marijuana with a valid drivers licence, California address, $40 and "any believable medical condition". Next stop was Manhattan beach to catch up with Krystal who I haven't seen in about 7 years! Had a fish taco- Mexican style and now apparently i'm now a true Californian. Last stop was to see the Hollywood sign which I'd somehow missed the whole time I've been in LA! Thought it would be a bit bigger that it was but anyway.
I'm still feeling sick so didn't sleep well last night. I started the day with an antioxidant rich brekky- pineapple, green melon, rock melon, water melon, strawberries and banana and the we started the day by going to Beverly Hills and Rodeo drive. First thing noteworthy is that the place is so fake! Everything is perfectly manicured and clean, the buildings are perfect, there are Ferraris, Bentleys, BMW's, Mercedes, Lambos driving around like it's no bodies business. The amount of money in that place is just silly, but with that comes the stuck up pretentious pricks who don't even smile. Shit, if I was balling with millions and a Beverly Hills address I'd be the happiest guy ever! One thing that was noteworthy is that despite all the money and glamour the roads are shit! Potholes everywhere! Which in saying that is pretty standard for the whole of LA. I keep trying to get in the drivers door to be a passenger and the driving on the other side of the road is becoming a joke- I've nearly been run over so many times
