Los Angeles and Its “Magnificence”

Being on the west coast was so much fun. We booked a tour for 7 days. The majority of the people in the bus were Chinese, as well as the tour guides. One of the tour guides, however, did not speak good English and every other word he used was “OK”. Anyway, the tour lasted, as I said, 7 days. We spent 3 and a half nights in LA. And I say 3 and a half, because the last night we slept only an hour in the hotel, because we had to catch a very early flight. But, does it count as LA, if we stayed in a hotel in Covina?

The hotel itself was amazing. It was peaceful and all of the amenities were fine. Although, the housekeeper was soooo slow cleaning our room, even though that she knew we were waiting. And I say that with annoyance, because I had been a housekeeper before, and I’ve never done that. Anyway, we spent the day at the pool with some beer and good music. We tried to go to the walk of fame, but going to LA from Covina and then coming back, without a car, was very hard. So, after the trip ended we went in LA on our own. We booked a hotel through friends and little did we know where it was…when you hear “East Hollywood”, you expect something, let’s say, fancy. We saw nothing like that. As we got off the subway, we saw how a police car stops and the police men entered a McDonald’s with very big guns. I know that my heart skipped a beat. The hotel was awful, but we managed to stay a night and a half there.

The walk of fame was as I remembered it – dirty and shabby. It was nothing as my friends expected. I’ve been there before, so I myself was prepared for this disappointment. It is called “Hollywood Walk of Fame”, but for us it was just “Hollywood Walk of Shame”. At least, we had a nice walk and made some pictures. Then we walked through a bad neighborhood and I felt really sad about all the homeless people who were sleeping there. It’s a shame that among all of the shiny and glamorous bars and restaurants, people were sleeping on the ground and had nothing to eat.
