second to last day
Today is a balmy 84F =) It's funny how quickly we have acclimatized. Since we arrived, the weather has ranged between 94 to 104F which is 34 to 40 C.
Monday was spent exploring Los Angeles' Chinatown. It was very different than the one in Vancouver. Kind of beat up and very few grocery shops lining the streets. They had a huge open air market, but most of the stalls were filled with imported clothes, underwear and toys made in China. Not the best, but glad we went. We had dim sum with Kim at the Empress Pavilion in Chinatown. It was ok. Vancouver definitely has the best sushi and dim sum hands down!
Last night we all piled into the car after spending several hours in the pool and made our way to Glendale. We discovered a huge shopping complex that is very similar to the Grove (same shops), but larger! We had dinner at the cheesecake factory and then rolled home. Literally! Have you ever been there? The portions are HUGE. Rob and I shared two dishes, but barely touched one and made a slight dent on the second.
Well.. its time to go home...
Carolyn left last night. Lorene and Jess flew home this morning and Kim is catching the 4:30pm flight. Our flight is at 6:45pm and we get in around midnight. I can't believe it is already time to leave! Although I am sad to leave, I can't wait to sleep in my own bed and I miss cleo so much!
