Firstly, thank you for all your comments. I will try to answer some of your questions.
Food over here is quite cheap. For example for dinner tonight a large plate of salad was $3 and a large meal of meat, vegetables was $12. That was enough food for two people with left overs. So dinner for two cost $15 but we tip the waiters because they do not earn much for their job.
The box of nerds which is 1.5 pounds (How many Kilograms is that?) would have been cheaper than Australia? I am not sure how much they cost because I was not interested in buying them. I was just amazed that they made them that big.
The dress worth $1750 was kind of cheap compared to the shops around it. The people who would buy this type of thing are the rich and famous. I looked everywhere for some famous people that were shopping but didn't see any.
I have been on the look out for famous people and as of yet have not seen any.
The car crash at the drags was exciting and terrifying until I knew that the driver was safe. The crowd went crazy and they replayed it about 50 times on the big screen.
Today we went shopping to the direct factory outlets and then for a look around Disneyland.
The shopping was great! I loved being in the Nike store as they had lots of sale items! I had the perfect foot size for a super special and managed to get a pair of Nike running shoes for 20% off $21.97. I am sure they were the cheapest in the store. Their last years model and probably our this years model. Most of the pairs were priced around $59. So I got myself the ultimate bargain.
The best shop I have ever seen in my life was the Vans store. Yes they had more colored Vans and skateboard decks than I have ever seen BUT that was not what blew me away. Out the back of the shop they had a warehouse sized skate and BMX track. People could skate or ride for the whole day 10am to 10pm for $12. It is a legal requirement to wear safety gear and all the riders had it on. The people riding (most were kids your age) absolutely blew me away with their ability.
After I shopped and then dropped I came back for a Nanna nap. Then awoke refreshed so headed out to check out around Disneyland. It was like a fairy tale drive up to the fully enclosed Disneyland. I couldn't see anything but I did hear the fireworks at 9pm. Around that area it is set up for the tourist with shops set into beautiful environments that not only entice you to spend your money buy entertain you at the same time. The streets are lined with fairy lights on the trees and there are lots of fast food joints and large hotels.
We ate dinner at a Sports Bar and Grill. The food was really yummy but the most amazing thing is at there were televisions right around the room showing every sport imaginable - there was even a TV in the toilet of the sport that was beng shown with the sound on. You didn't have to miss a second of the game. The entrance had two huge blown up NFL players which I thought was interesting and the people who worked there wore sport tops.
Glad that you are being good and making me proud. I hope you keep enjoying the blog AND YES I am missing you!
