Things I love: the culture, how close everything, the variety of the districts, quality of the restaurants, and the weather!
The hate: TRAFFIC. I hate LA traffic! It ruins everything! It ruins everything that makes LA amazing. That quality restaurant that is in close proximity is actually unattainable due to the hundreds of cars on the 134! Today we went to a coffee shop Urth Cafe. About 20 minutes away. UNLESS there is traffic, in that case its 45 minutes.
We battled traffic for 45 minutes and it was only worth it when we sank our lips into their delicious cappuccinos. Urth Cafe is semi famous in that it is the cafe that is featured in the TV show Entourage. Even if Urth cafe is famous any where you go in LA general if your going to get the celebrity vibe. Everyone is checking out everyone. Some one would walk up the steps of the shop they and then scan the room through their sunglasses. This was done to assess if there was anyone they knew or should know. Also, people sitting with computer are usually working on a screen plays.
As much a celebrity sightings are a generalization of LA, it is an occurrence. You can feel it in the air, the self importance, the thirst for fame. The people that go to this coffee shop may not be a celebrity but they sure dress like they are!
Since Urth is in the Art District we popped into a little alley away from the prying eyes of the wealthy to take some pictures with my camera. It had to be private. I had to make sure no one saw us. There were to many photographers, videographers, models and actors about!
Here is Tuukks. Sporting an epic ensemble of green. I digged it. I try to push him into the photos as much as I can. Though he is resistant.
