We tried to take this trip the day of the earthquake (the 29th of July) but I basically got lost, traffic was really bad, and there was a motorcycle accident directly in front of us so we tried again on Monday. We had a good time walking around Grauman's Chinese Theatre, lunch at the Farmers Market and visiting the LA temple afterwords. At the theatre I thought It was interesting that my feet were tiny compared to Will Smith's, a little bigger the Gene Kelly's, and huge compared to Shirley Temple's. Fun to know that Will's is the 2nd most recent print and that Charlie Chaplin slab was removed from in front of the theatre in the 1950s, when accusations of communism turned the public opinion against him, and was moved to a family member's home in Eagle Rock and buried in the back yard. It is still there today. Crazy!
The farmers market is so fun. I wish I could eat at every booth. The temple looked beautiful and really big, unfortunately the visitors center was closed for remodel.
Kelly really was there. Sorry he is not pictured.
