Looking west

Every now and then I'll glimpse a scene that makes me think "oh yes, I'm in California."

Hazy sunset

Hazy sunset

Not the clearest day, but this was the first time I had seen the California coast (San Francisco doesn't count). I'm still a little shocked by how the mountains in this area pop up out of nowhere.

Thats California for ya.

Thats California for ya.

Sometimes I feel like every store needs this. I have found myself often unable to ask for directions in large cities (New York, London, et al.) because I don't speak, y'know, every language on Earth.

Obviously, this is a remark on the massive Spanish-speaking population in SoCal. But it's odd because this is an otherwise stodgy eyewear shop. Where do they get off with cheeky social commentary?

Commuting in a strange city

Commuting in a strange city

I'm in LA now, and figuring out how to get places. I've already underestimated the massive scale of the city and how spread out it is. I've looked up how to travel to certain faraway neighbourhoods and it seems downright absurd that I would take two buses and a train to get from A to B. Maybe it's true, i do need a car.

This burrito is the size of a small cat

This burrito is the size of a small cat

I ate the whole thing. In retrospect, it wasn't the best move, and I did not sleep well. I guess I have a weak east coast stomach.
