Well didn’t have quite the happy start I anticipated … First off AVIS car hire try to palm me off with a dodgy car that wouldn’t open from the inside, not wanting to re-enact scenes from dukes of hazard … I decided to go back in to complain and whilst doing so someone nicks my sat nav that I hired from uk ( GPS) I only noticed it had gone when I went back to car – and the whole time difference fogs my head – I went back in and after 30 minutes of being ignored …. I Said loudly I would need to call police to get a police number for travel insurance – and funnily enough it appeared on the counter …. Then the said sat nav wouldn’t pick up the street where my hotel is so drove aimlessly round ( hints of last trip …) stopped to ask the postman where the street was and he said he wasn’t from the area … so eventually after much zigzagging i made it to hotel by 7pm !!! I landed at 2 … So the reason for this mindless babble is I’m trying to stay awake to beat jet lag but I feel like someone’s slipped horse tranquillisers in my water …not a seasoned traveller … Tomorrow I’ll go look at the Hollywood sign and go “ahhhhh” and all will be better !
