Quick Trip

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".

My girls love sushi ! I have not really trid any but the vegetable.
Did you get to see Robin ???

Is Jeanne through school ?

No, she didn't get to see me nor did I get to see her! Too close and yet too far away.

I was in K town twice two weeks ago. It is hilarious -- the signs -- but also amazing how huge K town is now!

I must get the kids to Venice Beach this summer. It is a shame that they haven't been there when it is so uniquely LA. -- Robin
