Nice to back in Los Angeles again, this time with my kids. I missed the perfect 75F weather every day. This was a trip we planned back in 2020 but the pandemic disrupted all those plans.
The highlights were the Warner Brothers Studio Tour and Funko Hollywood toy shop, and Manhattan Beach, which I enjoyed visiting again.
The homeless situation in the Los Angeles area is awful – tent cities and dilapidated RVs parked on city streets. It’s sorta grim and dystopian. It was like this when I lived there back in the late 90s. Inflation was bonkers – everything from food to gas was up 50% nearly everywhere. But the perfect weather! Coming from Texas 100F heat in the summer, it was like paradise.
