RTW - Hollywood

After visiting the desert I had arrived back in Los Angeles, staying in Hollywood for the next 5 days. The following day was Friday, and one of the few days that the Six Flags Theme Park was open, with massive rides - one of the few things I was interested in doing in America, and so I got up nice and early to make my way across the city by three methods of transport to the theme park. Being a Friday, the theme park was almost empty, despite having some of the biggest rides I'd ever seen - making queues for massive rollercoasters almost non-existent. This meant that by 4pm, I'd already been on all the 12 rollercoasters I had wanted. The day was lovely too, like any summer day we could dream of in England! Definitely worth it!

The following day I made my way over to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, exploring the stars and viewing the sign from many different locations.

The day after had originally been planned to visit Universal Studios, but after reassessing the cost, and the levels of enjoyment I decided I would skip it, and have a rest day instead - Six Flags was so much better than I expected that that was enough to satisfy me.

On my last full day I went off to visit the Beverly Hills Area, walking past the huge gated mansions and down to Rodeo Drive, such a different world from the rest of the city, with its poor infrastructure and huge numbers of beggars (being asked for money less than 5 times in a day was slowly being considered a good day!).
