for whatever reason we didn't upgrade the zipcar with a gps so i played navigator on the iphone. you best believe all directions were spoken in the californians voice and most of the time they ended in a mulholland or two. i took these photos nearly the moment we stepped off the plane and i swear you can see the sigh of fresh air on our cranky new york faces. i sort of fell in love with santa monica.
the venice boardwalk was a short bike ride away and filled with quite the crowd of interesting people. for example... a woman eating breakfast in her glass house. seriously, completely glass home.
