Well I am back from La-La Land and I saw so much I hardly know where to begin. Unlike many people, whom we saw crowded on tour buses snapping photos of Ashton Kutcher’s house, we were looking for history. In our rented Kia, with Garmin as our usually-cooperative guide, we drove all over Los Angeles, to Brentwood, to Bel Air, to Beverly Hills, to Culver City, to Studio City, to Encino, to Glendale, to Santa Monica,┬áto Hollywood. We drove up long, twisted, tiny roads just to peer over the fence of houses previously owned by Clark, Carole, Jean Harlow, Lana Turner and many more. We snuck around legendary hotels, snapping photos left and right. We visited five cemeteries, strolling the grounds in hunt of certain gravestones, wandering the hallways of seemingly endless mausoleums. In the end, we had a great time and came home with over 500 photos.

I’ll be posting blog posts about our experiences for the next few weeks so stay tuned…
