California Love

So we've made it to California, and it is absolutely not disappointing....we are stoked to finally be here.

A few fun facts about California we've learned so far:
*The San Francisco Airport has no signs telling you how to get anywhere and has very few employees that are wiling to take a minute to help...
*We met a guy named Wesley on the flight from SFO to LAX who is leading a cub scouts group of 16 boys...we are so not envious.
*There are stop lights on many of the on-ramps for the highways where only 2 cars are allowed thru in each late at one time....
*Gas is cheaper here than in Charlotte....but not food! :)
*Hotels like to charge parking fees...and then tax on top of those fees...and our hotel had us wait in line at 2:55 with about 6 other customers until the clock said 3:00 and then they checked us in...
*We drove thru Inglewood after getting our rental car from LAX and didn't see any up-and-coming rappers on the streets...may have to go back thru this evening.
*The LA Convention Center is huge...and green...never seen anything quite like that...

We're headed to Fred62...a diner down the street from where we are staying in Hollywood that has gotten solid reviews and has been frequented by many of the Hollywood crowd.


...feels like we should add the twittering aspect to our blog.....

Glad you made it! So excited for your trip, but totally jealous!

So, last spring break my friend and I went to Cali and traveled all around. We went riding through Bel-Air (in honor of THE Fresh Prince), and saw the one and only Patrick Dempsey (McDreamy) riding his bike. We definitely did some more laps around the neighborhood. You should go ride through there and try to spot someone(it's near UCLA, which you should go see too!) Have fun!
