We FINALLY made it to see Jeanne in Venice Beach. A very quick trip-we were with the child just barely over 24 hours. The area is as nicely organized a beach as I have ever seen. The bike paths, sports areas, picnic places, children's and adult playgrounds, and exercise centers make a very nice place to play.
We went to the sushi bar where Jeanne works. The tall golden canister in the center of the pic contained the $250 bottle of Sake before she sold it - and got a one hundred dollar tip!
Because we don't get to see it very often, we really enjoyed Korea town. I especially liked the signs with a little English, a little Spanish and a little Korean. Is it just me, or, is this one particularily hilarious? (Well, how would YOU have translated that "7" in front of the Spanish word for "days"?)
Many Korean people knew when they immigrated to LA they would have to struggle with a new language-they just didn't know it would be Spanish!
Jeanne particularily liked this sign, with a little Korean, a little English and a little "Vietnamese".
