We arrived in hollywood after a quick trip on the greyhound and just had a real short walk to our hostel which is just off hollywood boulevard which is pretty cool. just had a lazy afternoon and an early night ready to go to universal studios the next day.
When we got universal studios we went straight on the back to the future ride and then headed off for the studio backlot tour. We nearly got eaten by king kong and jaws and got trapped in the middle of an underground station. We saw the street where desperate housewives is filmed and the plane crash site from war of the worlds. We saw whoville from the grinch and the house used in the great outdoors. later on I dragged kate onto the mummys revenge which is a rollercoaster in the dark it was pretty cool and then i went on the jurassic park ride and got soaked.
The next day we went on a hollywood stars tour with a tour guide who was like Ting Tong from little britain she had me and kate in hysterics I think she fancies simon cowell. We saw Ozzy osbournes, courtney cox, jenniffer anistons, maddonas hedge, tom cruise and loads of others . we went along rodeo drive where pretty women was filmed and saw all the famouse shops and stuff.
yesterday we went to Santa Monica and venice beach and got sunburnt again. We just lounged around on the beach all day kate tried to do her muscleman bit at muscle beach(pictures to come). We had another eventful bus ride back with this really crazy old fella.
We have just had another big breakfast at the international house of pancakes and kate actually managed to finish all of her food for once. We are just winding down now very excited about getting to fiji on wednesday and we are booked straight onto the feejee experience the day we arrive so we are looking forward to going sandboarding.
Lots of love Andy and kate xxx
