We arrived safely in Los Angeles after a flight which seemed to last forever and fortunately we got through customs without a hitch. Our bags were the first off the plane and we only had to answer a few questions about our 4ft long spoon in customs! David was waiting to meet us as we walked out and we drove back to the apartment. After a bit of a chat over a beer we decided to hit the sack, and boy what a novelty it was not having to sleep in the same room as Rory!
In the morning I slapped on the suncream and headed to the pool for a little sunbathing/swimming in the sun! Thats how we spent most of the morning and early afternoon. Then we decided to put Rory's driving skills to the test by going on a road trip to the local shopping mall. After getting hideously lost for about an hour we found the mall and went for a wander. We didn't buy anything but we had a good laugh. Once we got home we went for a shop for dinner got a few bits and pieces. David cooked some delicious barbequed salmon and it was certainly a treat to have some home cooking and not worry about the quality/provenance of the food! We then had a heated debate over about a range of issues about the US system versus the UK which was good fun and helped stop our brains turning to total mush while we are away!
