Trains in LA

So pleased to have a break from the London Underground and public transport for the last week while I'm in California. However, thought you might like to see the closest I got to the subway in LA. It's the entrance to the
Hollywood Highland Metro station on Hollywood Boulevard.

Metro on Hollywood Blvd

Never rode the subway there, so I've no idea how it compares with the subway in New York or elsewhere in the US. If anyone's used the LA Metro, let me know.

At the weekend, I really enjoyed taking a tram up to the Getty Center. The sun was pouring through the windows, the sky was blue, it was warm, the air was clear. If only Tube travel could be like this!

Tram up to Getty Center

As you can see from the picture below there were fantastic views of Los
Angeles. Luckily there was a break in the weather (last week California had big winter storms and it rained from the day we arrived).

Back in London on Saturday, but in the meantime, here's a link to my Flickr set of photos from California, Los Angeles & Santa Monica - will be updating it over the coming week - as I have a backlog of photos to upload from the weekend
