Our search for the Californian dream in LA

California dreamin' on such a winter's day!
So, there you were in your shorts on the beach in the middle of winter--ah, LA!

There's a fabulous new metro system in LA, but too bad it doesn't yet go to the beaches, but at least you got to see some characters on the buses. The homeless problem is huge in LA, and in fact not too far from skid row, there are incredible museums and concert halls. The government and NGOs are always working on projects, but little seems to get down. So terrible in such a rich city. But as you experienced, so many sides to that crazy city.
