Los Angeles, CA
After a short stay in downtown LA we moved over to Hollywood on the 15th and checked into the very nice Renaissance Hollywood Hotel. High speed Internet at last. Caught the Metro to Universal City where we spent 1 hour in various lines to finally get our “Front of Line Pass”, thank goodness we purchased two of those. Universal Studios was great with the highlight being the new 3D King Kong Adventure Ride. It was very hot today (a heatwave according to the locals) and we both ended up sunburnt. Back to the Hotel and we cooled down with multiple Gin and Tonics.
On the 16th it was very hot again as we boarded an open top buss and headed off on a three hour tour of the Stars Homes in Beverly Hills, Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive and Santa Monica Boulevard which is the first part of Route 66 we have hit.
Hollywood is a great place to stay and we enjoyed it very much. Off to Chicago tomorrow, one day ahead of schedule.
