Los Angeles - Back in time

We said good bye at the airport to Richard and Jennifer, sharing a beer and some sweet potatoes chips and beer butter chips, but with the knowing that we’ll see each other again soon.

Marco couldn`t wait to watch movies on the flight and soon we were on our way to Fiji with Air Pacific. What a friendly bunch of stewards! A couple of hours later we were on our way to Los Angeles! We are going to the USA, and we were so excited!

We lived one day twice! We boarded the plane 13h30 in Auckland, on the 21st of January 2012, and we landed in Los Angeles fifteen hours later, but still January 21, 2012 only three hours earlier! Time travel for you! Why is it that I felt so intimidated and overwhelmed? Immediately we were shoved into rows for Immigration, but the TV screens were showing us how people were searched and for what reasons, and which forms to complete and how important everything is. Maybe I got so used to the relaxed island style of things.

We got a taxi and were soon on our way to our hotel, a day too soon, but they were more than happy to see us! After a shower and a nap, Marco woke up ready for the new day. He couldn`t stop peeking through the window, not understanding why it is not yet morning at eleven o clock. Despondent he got back into bed to try and get some more sleep!

Los Angeles! We are ready for you! We got into the bus and enjoyed walking around Down Town.

We walked the jewelery and fashion district and ended up in Little Tokyo for a late lunch.

 Tomorrow we will pick up our Motor home for a new adventure!
