Vegas

If you ever go to Vegas there are some rules you should abide by. Don't buy drugs, don't forge your own money and don't get sun burnt... Ted certainly tried to do all of them, good man! Here is his attempt at forging a $10 bill.

Michael Jackson

So Michael Jackson passed away a month ago, I figured I would go pay my respects by taking a picture of his Hollywood star. Unfortunately the madness surrounding his death still hasn't died down, as can be seen by the crowd around his star in the picture below. It has been totally crazy since his death, it's almost like a religious leader has passed away.

Anyway here is a pic of his star with accoutrements.

Beverly Hills

Dan and Ted, a couple of good blokes I met in San Fran,and I met up again in the hostel in LA. We figured we needed to get out and explore the area so we got on a Beverly Hills tour. Some random bloke with insane hair took us around some famous people's houses. We saw Dr Phil's house, Michael Jackson's place and a few other non real celebrities (i.e. we don't know them in this country).

Took a cool snap of the Beverly Hills sign too!

LA

Hopped on another bus and headed down to LA. I am flying from LAX in about a months time to Perth so I figured I should check it out. Dan and Ted my new friends from San Fran wanted to go up to the Hollywood sign and take some snaps so we trekked up to the sign and did just that!

Alcatraz

I hopped on a boat to Alcatraz today for the day tour. Gotta say I was looking forward to this one, place where some of the most infamous criminals in American history were incarcerated? Sign me up! So I did the walking tour and learnt about the Battle of Alcatraz when the inmates went nuts and managed to take over the prison. How Native Americans decided to claim it for a bit and make it their home. I went in Al Capone's cell, not too shabby... Nowadays though it is a bird sanctuary as there are no natural predators like cats and other nonsense on the island. If you get a chance to go to Alcatraz it is definitely worth it!
