Did you know that the famous Hollywood sign was first there as an outdoor ad campaign for a suburban housing development called Hollywoodland?
You can see it from the Griffith Observatory and because it was so close, we decided to take a drive to get a closer look. Of course we had to take the typical tourist shot with the sign in the background :D
I was only in LA for the weekend so this was my last day there. R took me to the airport later that night and my flight took off a little past midnight, which it was perfect because I slept most of the way back to Tokyo.
Los Angeles was a beautiful city. I say this about pretty much every city I visit but it's nonetheless true. I loved the odd weather (a mixture of hot rays and cool breeze), the creativity that seems to be around every corner of the city, and the amazing six-lane highways that everyone drives on.
I'd heard rumors about how awful the traffic in LA was but I think we were lucky and didn't hit any traffic. Even if we did, I didn't notice because sitting in the car in LA is kind of like sitting in a cafe in Tokyo, it gives you time to chat about everything from family to life-goals while sipping your coffee. I enjoyed every minute in R's car and had nothing to complain about.
I think I'm hooked. x
