stood in line for check-in i start talking with Hans, from colone in germany. and stayed with the guy and talked about all our travels etc. we were in the bar at the airport cutting it a little fine to make the plane, and then it came. -- Tannoy- " paging Mr james hayes and Mr Hans ..... final call for the two remaining passengers, the doors are about to close" Argh , so up we got and legged in the 200 metres or so to the gate 7. ! greeted by the guys of Qantas asking if i enjoyed the beer ! haha .

we got seated together on the plane also. and took advantage of the free beverages ! to help me sleep you know. and it worked a treat. i watched lord of war, with nic cage. and started to watch another movie but passed out and awoke 6 hours later. ! sweet. only 2 hours to go of the 11 hour 50 minute flight. and its 10am on saturday morning, which is funny as i boarded the plne at 730 PM on saturday evening! an extra day. exellent!
i tried to contact V when i was in the terminal, a friend of mikeys who lives in hollywood, but couldnt contact him and decided to head to the hostel that hans was going to. Santa Monica the destination. checked in and headed for a walk down to Venice beach.
what a mad place, its full of strange individual people, who dont give a crap how they look, wear what thewy please. people everywhere, running, cycling, skating, playing street hockey, and working out on the beach. it was great ! we walked for abouyt 5-6 hours i think, stopped for a refreshment in a typically american bar. got I.D'd !
oh, i met rod stewart aswell, he's lost his marbles a bit though. a lookalikey bloke was dancing down the promanade, singing strage songs with his headphones on, i took a picture of the guy, it was hillarious everyone was stopping to watch this guy. ! nutter.
and that was venice, full of nutters... extravagant people with to much time and to much money in there pocket. then there was the street acts, taking money from everyone, making a small fortune by the look it also, fair play though.
a taxi was needed to get back to the hostel, it was getting dark and the freaks come out at night sprung to mind ! so didnt fancy the walk back in the dark ! scardy cat you say, but this place is dangerous !
i ate in Hooters last night. ! sorry jade. had to !
got to bed pretty late, and slet in all day ! woke up at 6pm, dam it. a day lost.
it was dark when i woke up ! i wasnt happy , so today has been a waste, just some fruit and food and your bang upto date, i havnt seen hans today, no idea , think he went on the tour we wanted to do.
\my flight leaves at 1pm tomorrow, from LA to toronto, via charlotte in NC, a little worried as there is a huge winter storm on the east coast, i think i may be delayed some what. more airport time. !DOH !
