Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles
Los Angeles is the second-largest city in USA. It's a very variated and spreadout city - there is not just one city-center but many - it is several cities, that have grown into one city. It means that the city changes as you travel trough it. And when you travel, you travel by car - Los Angeles has public transport, but because of the distances it's slow. And because Los Angeles is a new city - it has grown from nearly nothing to what it is today in just one century - it is made for car-transport. Rodeo Drive

Typical street in Hollywood - it isn't as fascinating as it sounds to europeans
Los Angeles is fascinating because it is so big, variated and full of contrast - from the fashionable Beverly Hills to the poor East LA. Still, it is also possible to get to much of it - it dosn't have the same charm as San Francisco, so I didn't stay for more than 2 days. The Hollywood sign

Walk of Fame

On Hollywood Blvd. you can see the stars on Walk of Fame - not live but as "stars" in the sidewalk. Most of them are relatively unknown, but there are still many possibilities for "namedropping" (63 kb)
