Thursday - Day 1 L.A.

After a taxi ride to the hotel, filled with more unexpected luxury, we booked in and went for a walk. The first corner we turned had the Disney Concert Hall sitting in front of us. But before we even got that far there was a roar in the sky and unbelievably, a stealth bomber flew between the buildings just overhead! No wonder people were reporting UFO sighting when this thing was being tested! It really doesn't look like a plane at all.

One of the things that is hilarious about the US are the adverts on TV. For ever 30 second ad about whatever medical product, 20 seconds are spent warning you not to take it! But this takes the biscuit. The area we're in is a commerce and banking skyscrapers; and outside one of the buildings we came across this sign.

We had a nice bite to eat, then popped our heads into the Los Angeles City Library. After that we did a bit of shopping, found a bar full of Celtic memorabilia, then headed back to the hotel for a night-cap. It's been a long day, but after a good nights rest... bring on the weekend!
