The city of Angles. LA is monstrous. When I think of LA, it brings to mind congestion and population. Yes LA does have a lot of people but the city feels fantastic and if you know what you are doing and where you are going the city can be a real treat. If you don’t you learn quickly as the city will gobble you up and spit you out quickly. There is such an allure of Glam and fame down in the LA area that it makes it really fun to be there. You already know the streets by name and most of the destinations. You have lived them through the Television and movies for the last 50 years. The city is humongous and it is impossible to categorize because it really isn’t any one thing. LA is a true melting pot of society. Despite millions of people and some of the worst congestion in the world, the city actually still flows fairly smoothly. Most people are friendly and the weather is as perfect as you can get. There is a little of everything there. From beaches to mountains to Hollywood to manufacturing. The city has it all. While I was there I did a little work, took a walk on Venice beach, ate lunch next to 4 people that I recognized from TV but didn’t know their names or exactly what I have seen them in, saw a Bugatti in a drive through, and ate dinner in Beverly Hills. The simple fact that a Porsche has all the bragging rights of a Hyundai in most other citys speaks volumes. There is a lot of talent and creativity in LA and that brings money, so many arrive looking for fame and fortune. For me I just wanted to set up some servers and enjoy the warm weather for a couple of days.
I have seen this so many times at the Burbank airport and finally got a good picture. Thought of it as entertaining since in my naiveté I have no idea how you fly a 737 quietly.
