The Eagle Has Landed :-)

I arrived at LAX about noon yesterday.

Luckily, I got past immigration. Now I'm convinced I don't look like a terrorist, he he.
First impressions? Well, what immediately struck me from high up the LA sky was first world pollution. Thick black clouds enveloped the bald and barren landscape. It coudn't be simple fog. From afar, the tips of the mountains can be clearly viewed.

I was expecting LA to be littered with skycrapers, but so far I've seen mostly low-rises (.e.g. Staples Center). Well, I still have to go downtown so I'm reserving my final comments for later.

I tried posting pics, but server error kept pestering me. Paging Blogger!

YOu jetsetter,you! Enjoy your vacation! (Bakasyon nga lang ba?)
Looking forward to those pics..

Btw,sorry to hear about your blackberry =(

Pabay-i, palit nala liwat bag-o.

When we lose something, I always like to think of it this way: it could have been worse.

Hey, don't forget to visit Universal Studios. It's cool there. Since LA's near Las Vegas already, you might as well go to the gambling capital of the US of A and, well, gamble (for fun). Hehe.

Gypsy said...

Oh wow, how exciting! Enjoy yourself and hope you'll have movie star sightings.;)

Coldman said...

What are you doing in LA? Is LAX cool? I hear that dome-airport thingy looks cool, and I already know that there are no sky-rocketing-scrapers in there, only small ones. And first world pollution? How bad is it?

Carlotta: Alam ko kabisado mo US. Sana nga nahila kitang tour guide. :-)

Gina: Honest, bakasyon lang talaga to. Kainis lang talaga yung phone kasi di tuloy ako ma contact ng mga hosts ko. Nagkagulo-gulo skeds.

Intsik: Napasyal na po ako Hollywood. Ok lang naman siya. :-)

aryo said...

Kris: Medyo kulang oras namin sa Hollywood. Pero ok lang.

Abaniko: Been to Universal as I write this. Hopefully, makapunta ng Vegas. Sayang nga lang. Sana nakautang muna ako sa yo ng pang gamble. :-)

Thanks Gypsy and coldman!

Ian: Napaghahalata ang pagiging sosyal mo sa mga pinapapuntahan mo sa akin he he. Ang hirap kasi mamasyal ng todo dahil nakakahiya sa hosts. Mga busy e.

Nomad: Madali lang mag "LAX". Ipon lang ng konti.

Carlo: Medyo mausok lang siguro talaga pagdating ko dahil katatapos lng ng sunog. Pero ok naman sa baba.
