I was in the City of Angels earlier this week and remain unimpressed. I’m sure it didn’t help that the weather was overcast and smoggy the whole time I was there, that traffic sucked, and that I flew 5-6 hours each way for a 2 hour meeting. Hey, I guess it’s just not for me – because it certainly didn’t look anything like the TV commercials they have for Gulliforniya.
A funny aside – Elisabeth’s grandmother refers to Arnold as a “Steyr Yokel” – although I’m not sure how the latter word is spelled auf Deutsch or Oesterreicher deutsch.
So you can keep the endless suburbs, shitty freeways, self-impressed people, air pollution, and constant threat of natural disaster and I’ll stick to my East Village / Union Square haunts.
