Well we're here in Los Angeles following the usual long flight across the Pacific. We have all arrived here safe and sound though customs, immigration and catching the shuttle were a little slow, We caught the Metro upto Universal City where we had tea at the Hard Rock cafe. It was really interesting up there and flowing with life and activity, I'm glad we made the effort to get out and do something tonight rather than just hanging round the hotel. We'll be back up that way tomorrow to spend the day at Universal Studios. One major frustration of our trip up town was the ticket machine which kept spitting out out coins and notes. Eventually we managed to buy 5 daypasses, I hope we have better luck with that in the morning, still I like riding the metro, it's cool fun.
