For some bizarre reason, I decided that we should do the Starline Tour Hop On, Hop Off Bus Tour on Thursday. I guess I didn't learn anything from the previous day? Or I really didn't want to drive in Los Angeles?
Either way, we braved the streets of LA in the worst bus(es) ever! But, we did get to see Hollywood and Beverley Hills. We tried to go to Millions of Milkshakes but it was closed. Kitson was disappointing. Most of the time we stayed on the bus but we did walk around parts of Beverly Hills, the Beverly Centre, The Grove/Farmers Market. We also decided to take the kid to the Harry Potter store, Whimsic Alley, which she loved. We had lunch at a random restaurant in Beverly Hills, Pinkberry at the Beverly Centre and cold beverages at the Starbucks in the Barnes and Noble at The Grove. Did I mention it was hot?
We took a bus back to our hotel from Whimsic Alley because it wasn't on the Hop On, Hop Off Bus Tour route and we couldn't find a cab. We made it back in one piece. Oddly, the LA buses, although crowded, were still better than the Starline Tour buses.
We had a late lunch at Johnny Rockets followed by some shopping. We really wanted to see Spiderman at Grauman's Chinese Theatre but it was no longer showing. We weren't interested in any of the other shows so we just wandered around for a bit longer. The kid wanted to see famous people so we (okay, I) told her that the people we saw inside the theatre getting interviewed were famous. They might be. They were there for the Hollywshorts Film Festival. We had dinner at California Pizza before packing and heading to bed.
