Los Angeles..I didnt actually fly in to LA I flew in to a smaller airport in Santa Ana. Vik was there waiting for me and we hopped in to his snazzy hybid and were off. We took the scenic route back to his place passing such places as Laguna Beach. There was action all over the place and I had a good time taking it all in. First order of Business was beer and food, we made a quick trip to the grocery store and bought some steaks, veggies and some cases of beer. We came back made a delicious dinner and before long we were playing 2man. What a great game it is, complete with nerf guns and fun new rule games.
The next day was a drive to downtown LA, this was one experience I wont soon forget, the amount of traffic was mind boggling. 6 lanes both ways and none stop traffic the whole time, so ridiculous. I remember approaching the city and seeing this brown/gray foggy haze over everyting. It took us some time to find our destination and finally made it. After a gruelling afternoon downtown we headed up to hollywood and walked along the boulevard. I have to admit I didnt recognize most of the stars of the walk of fame. I knew almost none. The drive back to San Clemente was slow and arduos, Vik did a good job driving. T
Saturday was the big day, the Ji meeting. It was a pretty lounging day, we didnt get up to much at all. We went for a drive down to Newport beach and walked along the beach there, checked out the pier and did a short tour by car. The evening was when all the action went down, Jeff and Jon came over and we had a fun evening of drinks, dinner frisbee and some wacked out kung-fu movie. That sunday was nice. Jon took me to his place in San Marcos and I met his father (who thought we were a couple). When I got back to San Clemente Vik an I went for a short drive an went for some good sushi in Dana Point.
Monday I went biking along the beach in San Clemente while Vik was at work and that evening rolled our last bit of 2man. We said our farewells in the morning and I took off for Venice Beach and wandered around the shops and stands for the day before getting my plane.
