Hollywood, Los Angeles, California

Standard

California…oh…California.

My first impression of LA was busy, complicated, crowded, traffic. Of course it’s because i flew out  and came in to USA through LA International Airport (when i went back home for my father’s funeral) So it’s a little bit familiar for me and i don’t really like to go out and come in to USA through LA .

Now that i am staying a few days in California, i feel a little bit different. It just feel like home; big city, traffic, buildings, people, a bit dirty, crowded.

I was impressed with all the people from all over the world i saw in Disneyland. i even came accross to some people who speak Indonesian language. I bet they are families doing vacation trip to Disneyland. and then seeing all the different people I saw in hollywood.

Here in Long Beach, I can see a lot of flying advertisement. A small aeroplane with an advertisement on the tail.

We went to the beach yesterday.  It was so windy, reminds me of windy Kansas. They are Annette’s roomates. Abby (Left) is from Montana and Anna (middle) is a Korean girl who grew up in LA. They are fun.

Kodak Theatre is the place where they have the Academy Award and the red carpet. It was my favourite spot of the day. And inside the building, on the pillars, they have written the title for the best motion picture of the year.
