Because of the time difference and the International Date Line, we gain a day on our trip home, so time-wise we arrived in Los Angeles before we left Shanghai! It was a great flight and the eleven hours went by quickly. After going through customs we picked up our luggage and moved it to where it will connect with our flight to San Jose. Without our luggage to cart around we were free to explore a bit of Los Angeles. We caught a shuttle bus to a close hotel and from there caught the bus we used to explore Los Angeles when we started our trip. We spent time wandering around Manhattan Beach. It has a lovely beach and pier area. After having a light lunch we got back on the bus and headed to a large shopping area. We didn't need anything but we had lots of hours we wanted to kill.
Then it was back to the hotel for a light meal and a change of clothes. We had now been awake for over 25 hours. We caught a shuttle back to the airport and our young driver happened to be from Costa Rica.
Our flight with Delta was close to being on time and we were finally on our way home at 11:30 am. All we wanted to do was close our eyes and sleep.
