Our time in Hollywood has just about come to an end. We haven't quite hit the big time ourselves, but stood exactly where george clooney did only 5 days earlier. Hollywood is an amazing place, some fascinating places, some real dives, but I guess it is what you expect. Hummers, porches, mercedes, latest models are about the only vehicles we see.
We caught the bus to Rodeo Drive, along sunset boulevarde, past the Viper Room, and off at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The houses are amazing and Monday morning must the gardeners morning. We were the only people walking along the street, the the gardeners would turn off their blowers while we passed by. You'd all be impressed by the amazing food van that services them.
The shops in Beverely Hills were amazing to look at from the outside - we weren't really game to enter - especially the one with the royal british guard parading out front - we took a photo to proove it.
Santa Monica was our next stop, and we walked along the pier - ate amazing cheese and bacon burgers, and then saw the shops along 3rd St Promonade - which were awesome - but still saving money for stores in Vegas.
We did a walking tour through the Hollywood Hills, and then up Runyan Canyon, that was some mean feat. And could see the 'Hollywood' sign out our bedroom window.
For those doing the GCC Challenge - we are averaging about 20,000 steps a day. (about 12 kilometres a day on foot).
Until our next entry. J&S
