Los Angeles, California
I had the pleasure of visiting the City of Angels this past weekend with my Braddock Elementary crew, Shan and Stephen. Shan has been a Kobe fan his entire life and with the Mamba retiring this season, it was time for us to pay tribute as he went head to head with the King one last time.
From D.C & ATL to LA we went. Here are some pictures we took throughout our trip.
We went to LA on Thursday without tickets to a Thursday night primetime game. We were unsure if Kobe or LeBron would play. We bought the tickets two hours before the game and prayed.
“Shan, what if he doesn’t play…?”
“Don’t worry he’ll play”
“How do you know?”
“I tweeted at him. He’ll play.” And so he did.
We are still waiting for a re-tweet from Kobe though..
Went out of our way to get In-N-Out burger for the first time. It was pretty hyped so I was excited but expectations fell short on the first bite.
Shake Shack & Five Guys > In-N-Out!
We asked our Lyft driver to take us to Griffith Park. He dropped us off telling us the Hollywood sign is only a 20 minute hike. Lies. He dropped us off on the other side of the mountain and took us 2.5 hours to hike up the mountain…hungover.
Stephen saved a little girl’s life on this treacherous hike down to the Griffith Observatory.
Stephen – “Damn.. there are NO homeless people here. WE are the homeless. Just push me into one of the Ferraris as it comes by…we can split the settlement three ways.”
Great trip out to LA. Big city with a lot of character and great weather. Won’t miss the traffic though. These were my highlights from the trip!
And last but not least…
More trips to come – Austin, TX…?
