Location: Santa Monica, LA, USA

MapWell I've arrived in the land where soft drinks cost less than water and cars are the size of tanks. Within 2 hours of arriving in LA, I'd been asked if I was Australian twice, seen a car accident, been asked for money, seen a guy shouting about Jesus, seen a woman dancing to busking, seen a girl walking down the street holding her dog Paris Hilton Style and been called a 'cute British Chick'. This country really is crazy, and it's quite a shock coming from an uninhabited island to a huge city! Trying desperately not to get caught up in the consumerism, but there are such lovely clothes here and so cheap! Planning on getting out of this crazy place pretty soon, but not sure where to go. Think I'll go and sit in Borders and browse through the travel section.. :)
