I wanted to get you a souvenir, because I really do wish you were here.   On a layover in between flights. Strolling and seeing the gift-shoppy sights.   I had the idea and it really seemed great, but I’m having trouble finding something you won’t hate.   At first I was looking at those [...]

I officially drove coast to coast! Or gulf to coast, but let’s not get hung up on technicalities. So what did I learn driving across America? 1.) The States are beautiful. I’ve read many accounts of road trips where people say that their main realization is that America is BIG. Even Rachael said it to [...]

Going to the Getty Museum is like visiting the home of a billionaire evil mastermind. Which makes sense, at least the billionaire part, because in 1982 it became the richest museum in the world, inheriting $1.2 billion from Getty himself (In 2011 the endowment was estimated at $5.6 billion.). At the time it was what [...]

Sarah and I went to see the Watts Towers, something I had read about online, but as of yet had not convinced any of my friends to go see with me. My sell of, “Uh they’re these towers…” wasn’t very convincing. However, Sarah was game to go check them out, so we could find out [...]

For my second graffiti adventure I took along my friend Sarah. We went to 203 S Garey St: the middle of Little Tokyo, the Arts District, and Skid Row. There was more graffiti than our eyes could hold… Running of the bulls, cave painting style. We met one of the graffiti artists that worked on [...]

[title pic by Julie Lake] My sister and I went graffiti exploring. I don’t think I need to write much for this post; the general message is that LA is beautiful. Around 7th & Mateo          Around Melrose & Martel

Some of the places I went in LA seemed more like something out of an  SNL skit than real life… If you’re looking for a place to stock up on supplies for your lates witch’s brew, I have just the place for you. Guarded by three large dogs, Necromance is your one-stop shop for anything [...]

The first morning we were in Los Angeles, I woke up early and went for a run. Boy was spring in the city looking pretty.       I love LA because everything is so colorful, from the fences, to the houses, to the fire hydrants, to the walls. Oh, the walls. Graffiti and murals are [...]

I picked my dad up from the Flagstaff airport, and off we went. He was in good form, immediately losing his phone (he was sitting on it), and mistakenly trying to go into the girls’ bathroom (I stopped him). Anyway, eventually we rolled up to the El Tovar Hotel in the Grand Canyon. (Image is [...]

There’s no place like home. Even if it’s someone else’s home. When Rachael and I got to Flagstaff, I dropped her off at the airport (only one gate, what!?) and went to go find my friend Clio. Flagstaff was nothing like I’d expected. I guess I thought Arizona was all red rock cliffs and desert, [...]
