|Bought a Groupon discount ticket for us to take a tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Well you get what you pay for....Our driver must have worked previously as a getaway driver for the mob. He never once used the brakes or stayed in his lane. But he did take us all over creation, pointing out houses of some to the famous and a couple places where actors died. We saw the Playboy Mansion, Aaron Spellings big ole house that covered a full city block and some other people’s homes. I was holding onto Barney’s arm so hard I was worried about how much longer our days on earth would be instead of listening to what the tour guide said.
After the ride from hell, we walked over to the Hollywood walk of stars....well someone must not be happy with Trump, his star was spray painted with a black cross over his name. We did visit Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Hollywood Bowl and Hollywood sign.
To be such a rich area code, it was so dirty....trash everywhere. There are pushy people everywhere trying to sell you CDs. We put LA at the bottom of our list of favorites. I was amazed at how many homeless people live there on the streets, under bridges, in the parks and next to the freeways. Some places look like a whole little community under plastic.....It just broke my heart.
I had looked forward to visiting LA .....I won’t return.
