A Day in West Hollywood

Long walks around the local area – this is a treat as there are not many parts of LA that are walkable but West Hollywood is one of them. Joined Karen and some other longstanding friends of ours – Paul and Murray – and had a very enjoyable dinner at La Boheme. The pics below show our very cool hotel – the Mondrian – where we are trying our best to be cool too – and probably not succeeding too well but having fun trying.

Some images of the Mondrian Hotel and the four of us on the communal swing in the lobby!

Today Karen and I did the open top bus tour – a must just about everywhere I go and stopped off at the Farmers Market and Grove for some shopping and lunch between the sightseeing. This included a stop at American Girl – a place that my friend Leon helped me to discover some years ago on a business trip. The phenomenon of these dolls is something else and worth looking up but one of the pics below shows the place where you can leave your American Girl doll at the hair salon to have her hair set -not the mini hairdressing chairs. Awesome. 

Amidst the glam and glamour and fun (note the mirror in my room that becomes a tv (and that’s the Golden Globes we are watching right now) – there are also some sadder examples of real life as can be seen in the final pic of this montage

    Ah, The American Girl Store! Brings back happy memories of trips to NY with Fleur who adored the whole thing! We still have the dolls, clothes etc!
    Your trip sounds fabulous and am enjoying it vicariously via your blog. Cold grey damp and misty in UK, FYI…….
    Look forward to next instalment xxxx

    Hi, looks like your having loads of great fun, food, friends and exercise with all the walking. Come across or recognize and familiar stars walking around in LA? We are still in NY with all the snow and very cold weather. Hoping to move to our new home this month and then head back to Pompano!
    Really enjoy the remainder of your travels of a life time ❤
