Aujourd'hui il faisait pas très beau, il pleuvait, il y avait du vent... mais on est quand même aller voir le signe Hollywood ! On a pris plein de photos et papa m'a pris en dessous du "H" (maman) :p. Ensuite on est allé à un centre commercial: The Grove, il était très grand mais le seul problème c'est qu'il était dehors! (Génial il pleut). Du coup on est aller au cinéma espérant qu'après il ce serait arrêté de pleuvoir, on a vu: Wrath of the Titans (un film de guerre) C'était bien. On est sorti du cinéma, il pleuvait toujours :/  Mais c'est pas grave on a pris le parapluie et on a commencé a marcher. Puis on est allé à Hollywood Boulevard c'est là où il y a toutes les étoiles de star j'ai pris en photo l'étoile de: Jacky Chan, Phil Collins... Sur le boulevard il y avait plein de magasin de T-shirt, souvenir... Et moi je voulait un T-shirt du coup on a fait je ne sais pas combien de magasin avant de trouvé celui que je voulais !(j'arrivait pas à me décider) Après on est aller à Beverly Hills, les maisons des stars, on croit que on a vu la maison de George Clooney et de Madonna mais on n'est pas sur ! Ensuite on est aller à Santa Monica (à côté de la mer) manger des crevettes au restaurant: Bubba Gump c'est un restaurant basé sur un film: Forest Gump.
Rainy day today as forecasted. It is a good thing we went to Universal studio yesterday! I slept till 8am today. Yeppeee! We started to drive to the hills to get as close as possible to the hollywood sign. The only way to get really close is by foot but we were not going to do that today. So we found a good spot and took loads of pictures in between 2 clouds. It was quite funny and people must have thought we were crazy. As it was rainy quite heavily we decided to go find a bank in a big mall. In turned out that all the shops were all outside apart from a very nice farmers markets where you could buy all sorts of nice foods and souvenirs. Anyway we ended up in a beautiful cinema that looked more mike a theatre. The movie we watched was not bad- full of special effects. We had made some sandwiches so we actually picnicked while watching it. (we were the only ones in the room) Unfortunately it didn't stop raining but we still went to see the hollywood boulevard. We spent hours trying to find a nice T-shirt for Elia. Hallellua we found one!!! The boulevard was busy and i was amazed by seeing so many stars on both sides of the street. Apart from that there isn't really anything special. A theatre, madame tussaud, shops and souvenirs... We managed to get from internet a few addresses from stars and drove to beverly hills where we saw the entrance of the house of madonna. in other words we saw a wall. Great... The area is beautiful and the houses are massive. Instead of going home we then drove 15minutes to Santa Monica by the coast. I remembered that there was a pier there so thought we could quickly go and have a look. It was cold and windy but it so nice to see the sea. We stayed on the pier to eat a shrimp from the jump restaurant based on the Forest jump story. Decoration and ambiance was fun and we tried 4 different types of prawns. Elia received a glass that flashes from the bottom and I managed to keep the special pint. We were back at 8pm after yet again a nice day. Tomorrow we are going to do some washing up and writting some post cards we bought. in the afternoon if the sun decided to come out we will go to Venice beach.
