So not technically Christmas, but Boxing day...
Left my parents house in Essex at 5.30am and arrived in L.A. At 2.30pm on Boxing Day (my sisters birthday). Decided to be adventurous and get the metro to North Hollywood, basically same as getting the Docklands light railway or a tram. Couldn’t get a taxi at the station in Hollywood so walked a mile or so up hill dragging my luggage behind me, was good to get to see the place though. Palm trees n famous road names, like Sunset Boulevard.
Finally made it to meet Karis at the house where she gave me a tour of the place. It has a cute pool n jacuzzi and I have a guest room with ensuite and a balcony! Feeling blessed!
Also met the two dogs we’re looking after, Red & Grey, two huskies.
We took them for a walk and had dinner while Karis tried to keep me awake… Finally caved in about 10pm local time about 5am UK time.
We’ve already made lots of plans for the next few weeks… So excited!
