Hollywood & Walk of Fame


Trying to live like the locals, we decided to catch a bus and the metro to the Walk of Fame. What the hell, time to walk (or ride) on the wild side for a bit.

We successfully catch the bus to the drop off point to the underground subway station. We jump on the train and catch it all the way to the Walk of Fame. Phew we did it and we also managed to get home in the reverse - we rock!

We spent a couple of hours walking around and getting some photos, but Alyssa isn't so keen to get her photo taken with any of the 'actors'. She is quite happy just looking for a reasonable distance.

The Walk of Fame is a source of curiosity for Lys who asks why they are there and who the people are. We explain that the stars are kind of like monuments or recognition to actors, musicians, singers etc who have achieved something special in the entertainment industry. She struggles to recognize most of the names until we come across Britney Spears and Robin Williams, then the penny dropped.

Perhaps we talked the Hollywood sign up a bit too much, because when we asked her whether she enjoyed seeing the sign, she was a bit unfazed by it. "It's just a big sign Mum!" Yep! You're absolutely right Lys, it's just a big sign.

Today, it looks like we're chilling at home because as soon as Lys got up and had breakfast she was out the door faster than a cheetah after prey and into the main house to play with the girls. psst! she had to do 30min of study first, much to her disgust - but this is all part of my 'return to study plan'.

Till next time folks - stay tuned to find out what our plans are for Dream 4.1.

Recommend that you find a WalMart and buy a Rand McNally. They are the Gregory's Map of The USA. The last one purchased by a friend of mine was $4.97. The only disadvantage is they are A3 in size but the detail is amazing.
