Hollywood, California

It's been a while since I've written anything.  My blog has been taking a beating since I've become a graduate student, as I've had less personal time.  However, I still have many things to write about and to share with all of you.  I first started my blog to practice my writing and it has helped me tremendously.  Thank you for your support.

Recently, I flew to Los Angeles to visit my sister.  While she was at work, I visited the L.A. area with D and L.  One of the places we visited was Hollywood.  I've always seen images of Hollywood on TV, but I wanted to see the place for myself. 

I always heard Hollywood wasn't clean and that there were a ton of bums roaming around.  However, it wasn't as bad as I had imagined.  In fact, I actually had a great time in Hollywood and things weren't as expensive as I thought they would be either.  In fact, we found $2.00 parking with validation. 

I didn't know what to expect in Hollywood, but I had a chance to see a number of interesting things.  My favorite would be the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, although it was a bit creepy. 

Here are some images from Hollywood during my visit:

I would like to return to L.A. to one day see a live show among many other things.  L.A. has a lot of things to offer and I can't wait to return for another visit. 


  1. Haha, another blogger I read just did a post about him visiting Hollywood a couple days ago. When I went to Hollywood a few years ago, I went to some museum of Hollywood memorabilia, but didn't go to Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum. It did seem a bit creepy.

    What are you studying as a grad student?

  2. Hi Eleni! Really? I'd love to see his experience. hehe Hollywood Memorabilia? It sounds interesting. Ripley's was pretty good. I'd say my favorite so far, although I wanted to see Madam T's Wax Museum. hehehe It was creepy. It showed how people used to get tortured back in the day among many other things. LOL Not all of it was creepy though.

    I'm studying TESOL. =) What are you studying?

  3. Sorry for the late reply...but better late than never, right? The post that the other blogger wrote about visiting Hollywood is here. Mostly it looks like he walked the Walk of Fame.

    I'm studying oceanography. That's really cool that you're doing grad school for TESOL. Do you speak any other languages?


Thank you for your comments!
