oh LA...this land of strip malls and facades won't stress you out. its laid back uniform of t-shirts and flip flops are perfect for walking anywhere from your parked car.

what makes this place unique? well, universal studios on one hand and disneyland on the other. maybe the getty, mann's chinese theatre, knotts berry farm and the queen mary if you have time to kill. maybe a creepy celebrity homes tour might tickle your fancy?

what i love best about LA is the natural beauty that's been left intact which makes for some very decent hiking but the beaches leave much to be desired if you don't surf. the shopping's great though. and yes, LA certainly redeems itself as a culinary bastion but expect to drive if you wanna get some grub.

where the sun sets

the sunsets can be breathtaking. the light refracted by the smog results in pretty colors. =)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:great korean bbq, vietnamese pho shops and mexican, mexican, mexican!
  • Cons:not a real city like say new york-hong kong-london-paris, lacks well developed history
