Mountain View LIVE!

Every Thursday in downtown Mountain View, they turn the main drag into a pedestrian area, have cover bands and some people park their crazy cars on the street.

Me and a few of my Couchsurfing friends went at least three times over the summer.

It was great fun.

Birds, Fish, Tea, Baths

"The only place on the planet with an aquarium, a planetarium, a natural history museum, and a 4-story rainforest all under one roof."

I was terrified. If you don't already know about my fish and bird phobia... now you do...

This place was like terror defined for me. I went into the rain forest thing and could not breathe, later I went down to the aquarium and could not move...

So so so so so so scary and gross. Everything, yuck.

After that, we went to the Japanese Tea Garden, which was a lot better and more enjoyable for me. It was bee-you-tee-ful.

So, after that we went to the Bistro at Sutro Baths and then walked around Sutro Baths. How Harold and Maude of us.

Oooh boy, busy day!

We had a busy busy day in Los Angeles.

First, we went to the Getty Museum and walked around on an architectural tour of the building. This is probably the only art gallery in the world where the building is 10 times more interesting than the actual art inside... whoah it was awesome. Owen completely lost his mind. He took some incredible pictures, check 'em out guyssss.

And yeah, I wore that dress every day. Sorry, it was hot, that's all I had.

After that, we drove down to Santa Monica and walked down the beach all the way to Venice Beach.

Venice Beach was interesting, I bought a painting from a crazy hippy that was of a fish in the shape of a cube that was saying "I AM THE BOX"! It cracked me up, and it was like $5. I hope he spent that money on weed.
