I arrived to the city center (well, its a center and not a centre !) late in the afternoon and it took me a while get to the hostel. The metro system in Los Angeles is rather ok, although the city is enormous and not highly built up – therefore you will not find metro stations few blocks away each way. You better plan your trip wisely around metro stations, buses or, a better option, just rent a car. It is not expensive and can get you easily anywhere. Although I still decided to walk the distances where I could 🙂 The weather was brilliant and I could not get enough of it!
You know you are in LA when you see this.
Just capitol records.
October. Lets bloom!
You still gotta be careful. Some lads do not respect anybody. LA did not feel as safe as SF that’s for sure.
We have fire drills. They have shake drills…
Again. Halloweed is coming! I mean halloween…
Lets take a trip somewhere.
Nice views of Burbank.
Almost there… it was hot…
There we are. The backstage. So to speak. Amazing views..!
Americans are obsessed with flagging everything everywhere. They did that to the Moon too!
And the backstage again. I could not get closer as there was a fence and the area was constantly observed by air patrol!
Curved streets in Hollywood hills.
Out in the sun. Gryfith in the back.
Just few haciendas en Los Angeles skylinas.
A rather traditional view.
Griffith Observatory! Probably one of the main LA attractions.
Some could spend hours there! Gives you a bit of a perspective how small we are.
Can you spot a small eartquake? (I later found out it was somewhere north of Los Angeles).
Leaving the park now. That was a nice 20 miles walk in the naked sun. Uffff that was what I needed!
I cant imagine this was so big back in the days!
Yes, its all tapes.
I love LA skyline.
How many times did I see this building fall down in movies?
Getting a trip to the downtown. Boiling hot!
I could live there. Up there.
Walt Disney Concert Hall. Not in Bilbao.
He played a big role in American history.
The Broad Museum. I did not have a chance (or time) to look inside.
Making a movie. Not an uncommon sight.
Thats an alternative to bilboards.
Old planes’ new life.
One great Polish!
But the reality in LA is not a movie. This is unforunately a true thing outside of Beverly Hills. Hollywood Boulevard is not glamurous.
It was grand… a real Hollywood experience! the silver dressed girl – thats Rachel McAdams.
The screams…”me, me , here, over here, I love you!”
Do you recognize this guy? A hint: Spider Man. All Dr Strange stars were present, including Tilda Swinton and Benedict Cumberbatch and others.
Anyway lets leave LA for a short bit and lets go crazy insane. Six Flags Magic Mountain!!! The world capital of thrill rides! (Sorry Cedar Point!). 18 rollercoasters muah! This one is called X2. I left the ride all green.
A flying rollercoaster, Tatsu. I almost lost my phone there. It was completely out of my pocket when the train stopped. I felt how the phone slipped out of the pocket while on the ride and pressed my body against the seat to hold it… the scariest ride ever……….
X2 at night
The superman. 120 meters up and straight back down.
Not everyone was happy 🙂 this park is hardly for kids to be honest. Its for grown up kids 🙂
