To continue from yesterday.....
So I had a day to recover in vegas and to organise what I was doing next. There was lots of messing around booking into the hotel, but it was very nice, well worth the money. Tried to hike to an internet cafe to book a tour to grand canyon etc, my card had been stopped! Walked back....turns out it had just taken 3 weeks for barclays to realise that I was in america and stop it for fraud. They are quick, Di caprio would have no chance rubing them! I eventually got it sorted, but grand canyon tour was full. Decided i didn't want to stay in Vegas any more and had to get out at all costs (Caught the disease from Sam and Scott!), so went to greyhound. The 2pm was full, so I waited and had to get the 5:30, via los angeles. I had some jackass on my bus, who did the usual trick of turning round and staring at me. When i acknowledged him, he said that his friend had told him that white socks were not made or worn anywhere in Europe. So I told him that I heard people in America wore shoes on there hands and pants on there heads. I think he was quite offended and said "Geez man I was only talking about white socks" NO WE WERENT JORGE! He then stared at my bag for ages, saw it was from amsterdam and said that was my home town. I literally had to turn my back to him and pretend to be engrossed in my book. I saw in the reflection he kept looking at me. Got to LA for about 12pm I think, waited 3 hours, then bussed to san diego. That was when the fun started! Did the trick I picked up from lads of turf up at a hotel and get in, except evrywhere was full. So after 2 hrs I had to go back to the station and guilt trip the guard into letting me stay till about 8am. These places are really grim. I turfed up at the hostel and they let me kip on the couch till I could check in at 10:30, and went to sleep pretty much straight away. Went for a walk round san diego for a few hrs at 3, walked up the pacific highway and had a bite to eat. It was quite nice, but I got hopelessly lost. The views from the highway were ace. In the evening I just got a few beers and chatted to 1 or 2 people. I havent really met many people I like here (Cant you tell?!), and got to bed reasonably early.
Got up at about 10 today, tried to sort out a car but enterprise was shut for labour day. Walked to book shop and got a lonely planet (Invaluable), and a couple of cd's for the car! Came back, sat in the common room to read my book in peace for an hour till I went into town.....1 minute later these 2 irish guys come in pissed up (About 11am) One of them had a borat Mankini on with his balls out singing fratellis, and he purposefuly turned round to moon me. I gave him first degree gurns, I was not a happy bunny. I looked at him and thought "You are literally the worst type of person I have ever met", and luckily he went. I know everybody will laugh, but you had to be there!
I got showered and went for a wonder and to Balboa park, which is like central park lite. It was really nice, the weather was roasting and views were ace. Just as I write this they have literally just come in shouting, probably going to look at my screen and start a fight. Ahhhh!
I got back about an hour ago. No idea what i am doing tonight, something fun I hope, then Im getting up early tomorrow to sort a car out and drive to LaGuNa BeAcH! Although i cant stay there, the cheapest hotel is $120!!!!!
That is enough ranting for today, I will do another blog asap hopefully I will meet some normal people by then!
