California Dreamin'

Well, we made it in to LA OK, and I have to say that LAX is the most horrible airport around! Very hospital-like, with low ceilings, stainless steel and those yucky spotted concrete floors. And American immigration/customs is pretty full on - we had to fill out a form on the plane declaring that we had not been involved in any terrorist activities, engaged in any activities of moral turpitude, or been involved in the Nazi movement between 1933 and 1946. Almost answered yes to that one just to see what kinda reaction I'd get, but I've been told the immigration folks don't have much of a sense of humour!!

We arrived pretty wrecked, at 6 in the morning, and managed to negotiate the extremely poor public transport system to our hostel in Hollywood. Didn't do much after that - pretty much crashed in the afternoon, and watched a movie in the lounge room at the hostel last night. It's a tres cool hostel, although there are a few too many Aussies here!

Headed out to Disneyland today - American commercialism at its absolute sparkling best. I've never seen so many people crammed into one spot before. Thanks to a great tip from Graham, we managed to jump a few queues for rides by getting "fast passes", but we still ended up lining up for 1.5 hours for Splash Mountain (well worth it though!!) Tamara and Daniel are keen to head out to Six Flags Magic Mountain for a bit more serious rollercoaster action - we'll see how that goes - not sure how my stomach will cope!!

    This doesn't really have to do with the topic right now, but I must ask if you might know where I might obtain a suitable captcha plugin that I could use on my blog?? I'm
    employing the same blog system as you and I'm having difficulty getting one?
