and constantly coughing and sneezing but started the day by going to the La
Brea tar pits which are off wilshire blvd and have been bubbling natural
gas through underground fissures for 40,000 years! They have discovered so
many dinosaur bones in there since they started digging from animals that
fell in the ages ago. Next stop was sunset boulevard and when looking at
the map we realised we were 2 blocks from the playboy mansion. Needless to
say we made a dash for that! We saw a party hire van coming out and got a
pretty good view of it through the gates but it was heavily security
guarded and i didnt have my camera ready :( next stop was the Walt Disney
Concert Hall which is a contemporary modern building right in downtown LA
Kinda looks like the gugenheim in Spain. Next stop was a walk through
downtown LA. This extremely recognisable celebrity ran passed me but I
can't remember where I know him from! It's gonna rack my brain for days
till I find out who it was! Next stop was Santa Monica pier. Talk about
having stuff to do! There are slacklines set up all along the beach along
with workout rings and climbing ropes for people to pit their strenght to
the test; saw some guys eat shit into the sand from falling off the rings!
I walked along the peir passed all the rides and rollercoasters and got to
the end of the jetty and saw a seal! There are so many mexicans in LA which is good cuz i can practise my spanish and it brings some culture to the place! Malibu was next on the agenda and what a waste of time that was. Such a shit beach and overrated place. Some super nice houses but if I was a celeb, i'd stick to Beverly Hills, or Santa Monica if you wanted a beach! Last stop was the Griffith Observatory which is the best thing I've done in LA so far. Perfect uninterruped view of the city and the Hollywood sign! A must see for visitors! Dinner called for some in-n-out which is a glorified maccas! Was alright but overhyped i think. In bed now completely knackered. Hope i can shake this cold tomorrow!!
