I've always wanted to go to Cali. It had always been in the big ol life plan to head there after college. Do a road trip, live / work out there. Instead, I was lucky enough to visit for a long weekend with Joe.
On our last night we met a bunch of Europeans who were just as stupefied by the light projection. They started making light of it but Joe said "no, go look at it". The first guy got off the elevator and sticks his hand out towards the wall to touch the light, when he didn't hit a wall he was shocked and said "hey!" The second guy got off on another floor and looked back at us before sticking his head in, shouting "hullo"! I was in stitches because I though the concept was stupid, but clearly people like it.
We took surfing lessons at Santa Monica Beach.
And then walked down to Venice beach.
We then went to Coast to eat and had the most amazing dessert ever - chocolate lava cake with salted caramel sauce and ice cream. To die for.
We hiked to the Hollywood sign
We then went to the Getty Museum. I was almost more impressed with the architecture and the landscaping than the art work inside.
I honestly cannot wait to explore more of CALI!
