Shopping in Not-so-sunny LA

Day 1 in LA and it is freezing cold and rainy – I wasn’t prepared for this kind of weather until Toronto and Niagara Falls! Surely the wet weather from Sydney didn’t follow us here? Hopefully it will warm up tomorrow when I go searching for George Clooney’s handprints in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

In the meantime I tried to warm up with a Spanish coffee from Urth Caffe in Santa Monica – yummmm…. This is the mild but I might try the strong version tomorrow.

On the way to Santa Monica Place and the 3rd Street Promenade shopping spots, there was a quick pit stop at Santa Monica Pier to fulfil the requisite 5% quota for sightseeing. Taking this picture totally counts.

The rest of the day was dedicated to shopping, although it was mostly cataloging for later purchases in Boston (which has much lower sales taxes). However, I couldn’t resist this skirt from Forever 21, since at $17.26 I’d probably only save, like…. 40c.
