The second day started out with a very rich and delicious breakfast. Eventhough we got up quite early it took us some time to get out of the friendly new home. We drove to Hollywood (my sister's wish) in order to get a glimpse of the glimmer world. The walk of fame was quite a disappointment since most of the stars were unknown to us. Still I could find my heroe: Johnny Cash, one of the most influential musicians of the last century and probably the greatest country artist of all time. After having visited kodak theatre and been stunned by the prices that rather resemble the skyscrapers of the day before than real shopping possibilities, we headed to Venice beach with a rather long but unsuccessful detour into the hills (my nationality forbids me to call them mountains) in search of Beverly hills, which cannot be found in the hills but on the way to Venice beach, and is not worth being visited.
This cannot be said about the very diverse location of Venice beach. Alls sorts of people can be found there. Bodybuilders, fortune-tellers, Marijuana-doctors, skaters, surfers, basketballers, hindu-gurus, all kinds of artists and many more. In case you want to see something else than 'normal people', this is the right place to go.
Because my youngest sister was a little bit scared and not very stunned by the great and wild skaters, we left earlier than some of us wanted to. On the way back, we bought the ingredients to cook for our lovely hosts, which later on enjoyed the meal.
