Griffith Observatory, In-n-Out and Bubba Gump
Afterwards we went out to lunch at a local In-n-Out Burger, as everyone who comes to LA to visit must eat In-n-Out, it's like a law or something. I really don't understand why folks love this place. I mean the burgers are good and the fries are okay but theirs nothing special about them.. at least in my opinion. But it seems to be a tradition and who am I to argue with tradition.
We debated on what to do next, his list consisted of LACMA, Natural Science Museum and Huntington Library. All of them great places and I would have loved to visit them all but they all require a large amount of time to see everything. It was already around 3pm and we were trying to set up a dinner with Bel before he left for Chicago (the next leg of his vacation).
Once we were back home we talked about going to Citywalk to have dinner with Bel and then maybe catch an IMAX screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but plans changed when we talked to Bel. He was happy to join us for dinner but he didn't have a way to the airport so being the nice guy that I am I offered to take him after we had dinner, which in essence squashed our plans for a movie after dinner.
Around 9pm we headed back to the car and Matt and I drove Bel to LAX and dropped him off for his red-eye to Chicago. Matt and I got back to my place around 11pm and I was exhausted so I called it a night. I don't have NerdStrong tomorrow morning but I do have work so I got a much needed good night sleep.
Like with the past few days we didn't get to do as much as I would have liked but we got some fun things accomplished and I hope Matt enjoyed his first time visit to the U.S. and Los Angeles.
