L: The first challenge of the day was to find our Ford Escape Jeep in a car park of several hundred cars armed only with a set of keys marked 'Blue - 6HU'. I guess that is the consequence of failing to be upsold on towing insurance: find your own god damn car buddy! We hit the road in search of pancakes which we were gratefully supplied with in Baker, somewhere in the desert between Vegas and LA. The scenery was bleak and temperatures hit well over 40c, just cactus and sand for miles and a few desolate looking trailers which you can't believe anyone could survive in. We finally saw the downtown high rises of LA in the distance, hurray for Hollywood!
We were greeted at the apartment by a friendly chap, the place is very nice and will do us all just fine for the next week. Roof top pool has views of the Hollywood sign and a trip to Ralphs supermarket was an event in itself...we couldn't contain Dave's excitement about being accepted for a Ralphs loyalty card. Discount coupons too for the theme parks...it can't get better than this! Cameron 'Ramsey' cooked us all tea, tortillas with guacomole and cheeseburger flavour pizza - watch out ladies, this one is a real crowd pleaser! After full tums, a bridget jones flick (my auto-biography) we're all ready for bed.
