So we've made it to LA!
There were some emotional goodbyes and a 20 minute delay, but our flight took off from Terminal 5 at 12:20pm and we were given a free upgrade so that we could sit together! Not bad at all. The flight was really smooth - excluding the landing! We watched a bit of the Kings Speech and played in-flight tetris :D
We landed in LA at around 3pm local time (around 11pm back home) and decided to take a trip outside of the airport instead of wasting 8 hours in a terminal. Our mini-American adventure started with a shuttle bus to Sepulveda Boulevard. Straight away, we were hit with the complication of crossing the enormous roads - infact we found pretty much everything about LA to be enormous (cars, people, roads, the works!)
We were recommended a Mexican diner called 'Baja Fresh', so we dug into a Baja Bowl and some Coke, and watched the typically huge, RnB playing Chevrolets roll past.
Hoping the next blogs are a bit more exotic but this is all for now... Hope all is well back home :) xx
