We actually got to LA earlier than we needed, so we had the luxury of using the car for an extra day. It was nice to be able to get all the extra carrier bags full of stuff we have gathered to the hostel without having to lug it on the bus. The hostel was clean with good facilities but just lacked atmosphere. Santa Monica itself was really nice. Its a good place to people watch down on the beach. All sorts of things going on from roller blading, to people working out / showing off on muscle beach. After seeing all the toned tanned bodies everywhere we decided very quickly that we would not be sun bathing on this beach.

We had a wander around the town and I spotted a stall saying 'Pyschic Cat' (Pauline & Len we now know where he really is!) It was only $2 to have your future told by two Pyschic cats - it had to be done really. The man running the stall started off by showing me bits of evidence that proved that cats are indeed psychic, then I had to pick a question from the book. I did not really know what I wanted to ask so went with 'How many children will I have?' Sister Clara then proceeded by spinning the Ouija board with her little paws. The only reason she spun the board was because she was trying to get to a teaspoon of some kind of cat drug or ground down Iams that the man was holding out for her. The man then said that Sister Clara said that if I prayed hard enough I can have as many children as I like (he too must be psychic to know what the cat was saying?!) How rubbish is that!! A bit wrong too I do not know what he was giving them. At the end I has to give the other cat $2 which he took between his paws and then he picked out a lucky message for me to take away. Quite a strange experience.

The following day we dropped off the car and had a look around Universal City and then on to the Walk of Fame and the Chinese Theatre with all of the Celebrity hand and foot prints. We came back to the hostel for the weekly BBQ where everyone ate their burger on their own table not making any eye contact with anyone. Thats when decided to got to the pub!
