Sun and Fun in Los Angeles

Hollywood sign

L.A. flew by in a blur. We rented the car at the airport and after learning to drive an automatic, we headed into L.A. and got lost—very lost. The Hollywood sign was a ‘must see’, so we ticked that off early and headed to the hills and finally, after getting lost again, down to Venice Beach for some of the finest people-watching I’ve seen outside Soho, London. We were already regretting refusing GPS with the car, but with the tattered map we had acquired in the U.K. we knew we’d be OK. (Tip No.1: If you are English and/or jet-lagged, do not go to a comedy club on your first night and sit in the front row. We survived the ridicule, just.)
