Hello! Our trip began with a long and boring flight from Heathrow to Los Angeles! The hostel is quite nice and the staff are friendly. They have tea on tap 24 hours a day and free pancakes that you make for yourelf in the morning!! This morning we went on a hike led by a man from the hostel, and WOW... 'hike' it certainly was! We got as close to the Hollywood sign as you're aloud to go. It's a very steep hill! As Mum would say, "kill or cure" and I think I may be dead!! After that we did some exploring of the Hollywood Boulevard. We found the best stars - ie. Queen and Dolly Parton!! We went to the Chinese theatre where they have the hand and foot brints of famous people and then went round 'Ripley's Believe it or not - Odditorium' It was suprisingly entertaining if a bit cringeworthy! Finally we had a very American HUGE pizza for dinner and went to see 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' at one of the big cinemas on the Boulevard. Finally... now it's time for tea!
