Adventure in LA

Every LA adventure I have is so different. I always discover something new about the city. Yesterday Anabel and I parked the car and walked around the city.

There is this hidden cafe that makes home style breakfast sandwiches. I discovered this place with some friends last summer and since then stop by when I am downtown.

After breakfast we walked to the Art Gallery. We got lost and found Little Tokyo.

We walked around the block a few times and finally found The Moca Art Museum to see Art in the Street. Its the summer exhibit of graffiti style projects from the 1970’s. The cool thing is that it’s attracting people who wouldn’t normally step foot in an Art gallery. My film camera didn’t do to well in the low light.

Afterward we crossed the street to El Pueblo. I find this place so fascinating. They sale so many cool hand-made toys, blankets and lots of Mexican restaurants to choose from. It feels like Mexico city.

We made our way to the car and drove to Santa Monica. We were planning to get in the water but it ended up being so cold. As you can see I am ready to get a tan.

After the sunset we decided to go see a movie. Anabel noticed this indie theater down the street so we went to look at the posters to see if anything interesting was playing. Anabel made her FB status “I’m @ Santa Monica with Monica @ Monica Theater 4 watching an independent film not quite by Monica :)” It was great to see my name in lights.

Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen looked good so we bought our tickets and stood in line with 300 old people. We were the only young ones there.

To have an adventure in a big city or even in the next town next to you. Be spontaneous and let the city come alive. Walk around and have some child like wonder. The best things in life are free.

  1. Sounds like an incredible time! I’ve never been to LA, but this is a good reminder that we all have adventures waiting for us in our own backyard. I have a vacation coming to me in two weeks, and for the first time, I have zero plans. I look forward to the exploration! Oh, how I love my Chi-town.

    *I do find it a bit ironic to catch a Woody Allen film in LA — seems to be at conflict with his being. 🙂

    1. LA isnt what LA makes it out to be. It really has to be discovered.
      Funny you should say that about Woody Allen, the movie was about a Hollywood writer wanting to move to Paris.
