I’ve been settling into Los Angeles and loving it. It’s so beautiful, so colorful, so kooky. The city is similar to New York in that there is no where else like it, with a specificity and breed of crazy that is entirely its own. I’m working from different cafes, exploring, meeting up and saying yes to everything! Each day brings new discovery and delight. Included are a few Instragram snaps from my stay so far. Above, the city from atop Griffith Park, which I walk to from my Los Feliz home.
I’m adjusting to car culture…and it’s not bad! I’m in a neighborhood where I can walk to stuff, so it’s nice to get behind the wheel and blast some Jimi Hendrix B-side from time to time (‘Crosstown Traffic’ is very relevant these days). Beyond the driving, though, it’s the cars that kill me! LA has some freaky looking cars, maybe a blog’s worth of ‘em. Above, a vintage Camaro atop Griffith Park; below, waiting at a traffic light at the intersection of Hyperion and Rowena.
Ombré carrots at the Hollywood Farmer’s Market. I hit the flea and farmer’s markets on the reg.
This made me chuckle on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “For my money, I don’t know if it gets any better than when he sings ‘When a Man Loves a Woman.’” -Bob, “Office Space.”
My pool. Yep.
Rowena is a great street to live on. Cute cars, access to excellent cafes and shops in both directions, and Rowena Reservoir, above, sublime at dusk. Stay tuned for more!
