Waiting for Erin
Geo: 33.8762, -118.405
Smooth run through LAX immigration and customs and Erin picked us up at 7:20am.
An orientation drive around the local area then we dropped Erin at work and took her car to look for SIM cards and a hire car. More than the usual drama in getting online, involving two trips to T-Mobile and one trip to the Apple Store. All ended well, eventually. Not so easy getting a hire car and we ended up booking a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV from Alamo LAX for the three weeks.
At Alamo we got sweet-talked into upscaling to a Chevy Tahoe, which turned out to be a monster of a car/truck. After considering it overnight, we went back and switched to a Cadillac SUV. Smaller and better optioned and we're well satisfied.
This is the Columbus Day long weekend (although it seems most folk don't get Monday off - public holidays are not a right in USA). As Erin works for an Aussie company they do get the holiday, and finished early on Fri avo. So we picked her up early and had a look at her office. Then went for a walk along the Strand and had a seafood dinner at Rock'N Fish
