LA as a tourist!
Hey there! Today my family (Grandparent's Kay and Chuck, Aunt Jill, cousins Jason & Kaylen and my Aussie friend Dave) started out and visited Chinatown which has a whole bunch of rubbish for a good price. Kaylen and found ourselves escaping from a lady trying to sell us underwear! I bought a hand bag because I didn't bring any small bags and carrying a wallet, water bottle and a borrowed phone alone in a giant suitcase really isn't convient! Travelling tip: Remember to bring a handbag and /or back pack when you travel, especially to hot places where you might not have lots of pockets ( a prob for the gals who don't usually wear cargo shorts 24-7- trendy skirts are strangely devoid of pockets!) We then went to Olvera Street which is where you can get all sorts of mexican stuff and some not so mexican! This is where the first house and street were built in LA. Jason, Kaylen, Dave and I picked up some custom leather cuffs. Mine is red with flowers! Then we walked around Universal City Walk where I found the Ultimate wind-up toy store (Cara collects fun wind-up toys)! Bought some my favourite was a lady bug who did both back flips and circles! Then we went to Baja Fresh which makes really great 'fresh' mexican food! Soooo full!
