One Week in LA Part I

I was in Los Angeles for a week - it was half for fun and other half for work. We flew in on Friday and stayed at Victor's new apartment for two nights. It is a very nice apartment. Both the host and hostess (what? who?) are curteous and thoughtful. The first night we had some really really awesome Chinese food at 大上海 - the 豆酥鱈魚, 絞白筍炒肉絲, 蟹黃絲瓜 were simply excellent. Unfortunately, I was too hungry to take any pictures.

Victor and Anita checking out the Chinese recipe brought over by Tami.

The next day, we went down to the Santa Monica beach for bike riding. It was only our second time on tandem bike. It was great, except for the old rental bike that was problematic - flat tire, stuck brakes, etc.

We saw the Arlington West at Santa Monica. This is a temporary memorial set up in memory of American soldiers who have fallen in Iraq. It was quite a sight. More info on the temporary memorial here.

The entire set of pictures from my Califonia trip are up. Here they are.
