We didn’t become millionaires in Las Vegas, so we had to think of something else ... Los Angeles! I will only reveal one thing already: we have not been 'discovered'. We are all very competitive people: Spiderman, Batman, Joker, Dora, Charlie Chaplin and even a Transformer! Well, we could not beat that :-)
If we look back to LA we think also of the many roads and massive traffic congestion. There's more, the people who live here are not tolerant, giving driving an adventure in itself. Except for lots of cars and people, we see the city where the big stars live and many wanna-be stars." But let's start at the beginning ...
We could get our car in Las Vegas and then driving to Los Angeles. Yes, you read that right: a car ... Anyway, once on the road, and accustomed to the car it was a nice ride. We drove through the desert and even had lunch in the desert!
Los Angeles has many fun (and delicious!) Eateries, bars, etc. That's also very exciting because you could suddenly just be alongside Tom Cruise or Mickey Mouse :-) We remember the most ancient "brothel", where we have been enjoying the wonderful road of Sunset Boulevard! What we felt a little strange was that there was constant police surveillance...
The Hollywood letters are in many places in Los Angeles. Despite this, it is not easy to simply go here to drive to. And we speak from experience! After many roads, questions about mountains and back, we've finally seen up close!
The most bizarre place in Los Angeles is the Avenue of Stars. This is known for the stars on the ground with the names of the artists (including figures like Mickey Mouse!?). What this bizarre place, is that very many people walking around dressed as Batman and a Transformer, who hope to be discovered here. Why do not they invent something original? We have indeed had the feeling that many of these people are there 'just' want to earn money, for a photo they want one U.S. dollar tip!
If you're in Los Angeles you don’t want to skip Beverly Hills or Bel-Air. The big stars live here. We have seen the home of Diana Ross and Julie Andrews. Unfortunately we have not spotted any big stars, but we did see the paperazzi who were chasing the stars :-)
And then a final word about Los Angeles: LA is not our city. It is far too busy and too big. The city is over 800 km of highways, let alone the ordinary four-lane roads. Without a car you're lost here and with cars you are always stuck in traffic. It was nice to get some highlights of LA had seen, but two days was long enough.
