09/11/2013  DAY SIX – HOLLYWOOD AND MORE SHOPPING

Just after we woke a couple of us walked down to Downtown to do some quick last minute shopping for family and friends, returning 30 minutes later to quite possibly the funniest shuttle driver ever!!

It was a great 45 minute drive, he pointed out every single car, attraction and anything else we thought was cool! Some of the freeways looked crazy, the roads twined together like nothing I have ever seen before!

We arrived at the Beverly Gardens Hotel to throw our bags down and basically run into Hollywood, there were shops everywhere!! Flashing lights; in broad daylight! It looked so different to what we all imagined! The walk of fame appeared like it just went on forever; all the stars were there (even though we couldn’t name any of them).

After being told the wrong information about the trains we arrived at the ‘central station’ of the local district, from there we caught a shuttle to the LA Dodgers game!

Arriving at the front gate we looked a little out of place, so we bought some LA gear, was a little expensive but was so worth it!

Baseball is such a different sport to anything we have in Australia; it was so intriguing the crowd was so lively and always ready to cheer! From nachos to Hotdogs dinner was pretty good!

With everyone still buzzing from the game we head towards the hotel where we jumped from channel to channel! US television is so good! So much variety everyone was wrapped.
