Now it's really been a while since the last blog, and in the meantime I've had the week of my life on Samoa It was just the way you picture a tropical island paradise; White beaches, palm trees, turqoise water and an open Fale' right on the beach Most of the time we have just been sunbathing, snorkelling or swimming, and it has been great We stayed in one place the whole time, a small resort called Taufua beach fales, located on the south-east tip of the island of Upolu. If I ever have the chance, i'm going back sometime!
Tuesday afternoon we arrived in LA. After giving our fingerprints and snapshots to the immigration-officers, we ended up in a hostel located close to Venice beach. We went for a walk down to the beach, and saw the famous "baywatch"-lifeguard-towers Wednesday we decided to go to Universal studios, to be real tourists you know We actally passed the set of Desperate Housewifes while they were filming.... Couldn't see any of the actors though We also stopped by the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and saw Sonia Henies hand-, foot- and skateprints
Apart from that, LA did'nt really appeal to me, and that's why we're currently in San Diego (or more precisely, a little north of San Diego, that is Ocean Beach). This place is really nice (kind of like the small surfer-towns in Australia), but still we are planning on going to Mexico tomorrow Tijuana is only 30 k's away, and we'll go there by trolley We'll be drinking tequila and corona and eating burritos all day, and we also plan to go shopping for mexican dresses
I will try to post some pictures from Tonga and Samoa if this computer will allow me to.
