Right now I’m sitting over looking LA city from the Hollywood sign look out, I thought this would be the perfect place to write my post about LA.
Today we were planning on going to Disneyland but poor Jackie woke up sick, so I set off on a solo journey to the Hollywood Sign, seeing as we went to the wrong place yesterday. On the bus I met some Brazilian girls so I was solo for long, and then I sped up ahead and lost them, but bumped into some lovely Ladies from LA, Connie and Elena.
So back track to Friday when we moved to Hollywood, the hostel was nice I got to try the iconic “In and Out Burger”.
Then we went on a shitty pub crawl the people were good but not the locations we went to. Some how I managed to lose everyone and go off on my own, met some dudes, and then we drove around dropping off clothes to homeless people, that was such an amazing experience.
The next morning I woke up with the world’s worst hang over, I have never been so sick in my life, my head was throbbing and I couldn’t move. I struggled to get some breakfast into me and then went back to sleep. We pretty much slept the whole day and then went out for some drinks to some cool speakeasy bars.
Sunday morning we woke up pretty fresh, seeing as we didn’t have shitty alcohol. We went on a hike to Runyon Canyon Park, had lunch at our favorite food spot Shophouse. It’s an Asian fast food place where you have an option of choosing noodle, rice or salad and then a meat (pork, chicken, steak, tofu) and then a sauce like peanut or curry, and some vegetables, then some other stuff on top like pickled vegetables, nuts, it’s delicious!!!
We then set off for the Hollywood sign but unfortunately we went to the wrong place and too late. (Below is how far we were)
So here I am on my not solo hike. Looking over the beautiful view.
Fast forward to later tonight, I have moved hostels to our new, not so great hostel. My bed wasn’t clean, no clean towels (have to wait till tomorrow) and the Internet wasn’t working, no chargers near the beds. But at least we came in time for the beer pong and free beer.
Also my lovely new LA friends recommend going to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) so we went there quickly before the move. Below is a picture of me on one of the iconic outdoor exhibits.
And after we got an epic feast at Mel’s Drive in which was this diner of the Hollywood Boulevard. (Free coffees)
And now I’m just deciding what to do, whether to stroll over to my old hostel or stay here.
