Reuniting with the Pixies on the 6.5 hour drive down to LA kept the 9 of us entertained despite the "no open bottles" law in this regulated state...but we were not so abiding at The Standard hotel where we met up with another 20 or more party freaks! Fortunately we had 4 rooms between us and could afford the numerous warnings for loud behaviour during one of the wildest parties I have ever been to! The city lights provided a great backdrop to the roof top bar which also included a pool & water-beds!

Breakfast the next afternoon was taken at Whacky Waffles on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, followed by some bullriding at the Saddle Ranch bar where Quentin Tarintino stopped by to wish us all well...Interestingly for me, I had been in this same bar 10 months earlier when first setting out on my travels, which provided me with a strange sense of completion and much reflection.

Then it was down to Orange County where the crew again took over the bar and pool table with now traditional antics! and I sampled my first Car Bomb (a shot of whisky & Baileys dropped into a glass of Guiness then skulled!)

The following morning I was given the OC tour which included the omlettes, freezing beach, ice-cream & doughnuts and much reminissing about the previous 2 nights...all to soon I was being dropped off at LAX for my final flight.

Farewell's are never easy and saying goodbye to my newest old friends who had taken me under their wing and shown me such an unbelievable time was no exception. THANK YOU!!
