I visited the west coast and got to meet some long-time friends for the first time!
Spending just four days in LA didn't seem like long enough--I saw so much but still left wanting more. Although the weather was rainy for half of my trip, seeing the sun come out and making all the streets and palm trees shine left me breathless. Amazing food (tried elote and *omg*), great friendships, and a beautiful city.
All the songs I've heard about LA are pretty accurate; if I were a native, I would live and die there too.
