Got to L.A and teamed up with some Canadian girls staying at the same hostel to work out how to get 17 miles to the hostel by bus we made it okay and only cost us $1.50 each, but was so Hungary by this point so after checking into hostel went to the first restaurant we see which was next door but this turned out to cost $40 ! For a pizza & a water each arghh!
Checked out of hostel then spent morning walking round harbour then went to get Greyhound bus to L.A this turned out to be the Nightmare Journey of all the horrible greyhound journeys 'long story short' we turned up 1 hour before bus was due to depart like we was told to by staff yesterday then was told we would have to be on standby as we may not get a seat on the bus. This was bad because our hostel was booked in LA and could turn costly, but after we both (mainly Louise) argued for ages with staff and the fat lady driver who said there was no seats they let us on for but was told will have to stand so got on the buss & there was 2 spare seats next to each other at the front, and 2 other spare seats, so between all the staff they could not work out how many people fit on a bus.
