America Trip 2 - Day 4

Today we went arrived in Boston, after flying through the night to Detroit, before getting on another plane to get to Boston. I was tired when we got to Boston, but it did not help that I 
my parents had to wake me up every time we got up off the bus and train, as I fell asleep on my Grandmother's head.

When we got to our accommodation, we found out after around an hour that the building had leaked, and that we were staying somewhere else. When we got to where we were staying, with Nana being driven as well as our big bags to the place by a maintenance man who showed up, we saw that the place was better looking than the last place we were at.

Mama and Papa went for a train ride to pick up some stuff that we needed, and when they got back we had dinner and went to bed.

America Trip 2 - Day 2

Today we went to La Brea Tar pits, with Nana going into the museum by herself, as we had gone there on our earlier visit to LA. While Nana was looking around inside the muesum, we went and looked at other places near the tar pits. When we came back, we met up with Nana and looked around the grounds of the tar pits, with me climbing onto a statue and having Papa taking a photo of me while on it.

After that, we went to Mission San Fernando, to have a look around, and this time, we actually got to look around the inside, not just the walls and the outside. During our trip to the mission, we went to have a look and get a photo of the house (mansion) used in the Iron Man movies. The mission looked good, and the graveyard had the earthly remains of Bob Hope, and a church with 7 foot thick walls.

We then went to have a look at a Cold War Missile Nuke site, but unfortunately their was nothing to see.

America Trip 2 - Day 1

First we went to see the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and saw several famous stars including Daniel Radcliffe (who plays Harry Potter), Tinkerbell, Snow White, Winnie the Pooh, Bugs Bunny, Orlando Bloom, Disneyland, Donald Duck, Tom Cruise, Gene Autry, Samuel L Jackson and Johnny Depp.

We got dragged into doing a limousine tour, though the price was high, the trip was good. We went and saw some millionaire's houses through Beverly Hills, including the house where Micheal Jackson died, George Clooney's house and others.

After the limo trip, we went to the Griffith's observatory, seeing the holly wood sign, before going to have a look at the outside of the San Gabriel, one of the missions.

We decided to go out to Santa Monica for dinner, looked at the Santa Monica pier, had tacos for dinner and went back to the apartment.
