Escape from LA

We are sure you remember there was a movie with the same name. The actor in the lead was Kurt Russell, playing the role of the hero saving not just the dame in distress (was she ever?) but also the world… That, dear friends was in 1996. Yes! We are back to our US series.

Did we try to escape from LA in that year?

Well no. That was just the setting to draw some curiosity towards this post. For you see, we were only in Los Angeles for a very short time before getting out of it towards Peru. As you can imagine, the excitement was all about getting to touch south America. Hence we believe you’d understand that we could not wait to ‘escape from LA’.

Did we see and do anything while in LA? Of course we did over the 10 hours that we wre in transit. We saw the mandatory signboard that says Hollywood (though did not take pictures). As if we didn’t know we were there… And we sautered the walk of fame as if we were celebrities in our own right – with our mysteriously large sunglasses on. Did not buy anything along Rodeo drive but we did spend time by Santa Monica strolling along the beach.

Some day we will be back. But for now this is all we did. Read here for what we went up to with just 10 hours in LA? When was the last time you were there in lala land?

  1. Sounds like my almost three weeks in SoCal… although I did spend 5 days/4 nights in Vegas. The problem with being a “local” in Los Angeles County, in Pasadena, is there are no touristy stuff experienced, except for Disneyland (but that’s in Anaheim, which is Orange County, not LA County… but still part of the larger Los Angeles metro… I am confused now, ha-ha!) and Old Pasadena. Therefore, like you, I am going back… at the end of this year, to be exact. 🙂

  2. Aside from changing planes, I have only had one visit to LA, to meet the man who had exactly the same job there that I had up in Berkeley. (I was news director of KPFA and he was news director of KPFK.) Our lives were totally different. I walked to work, he drove 1 1/2 hours on the freeway. To record interviews, I walked to the campus or took the bus to San Francisco. He drove for an hour on the freeways. He had a crazy life, I thought.
