Planning the first leg: LA on a budget

Mapped out on paper today some of mine and Jen's priorities for the Los Angeles portion of our trip.

We arrive on Wednesday evening at LAX and we're planning to rent a car from the airport to get to our Couchsurfing location near Koreatown (if we can snag a good deal on rental cars from Priceline--I'm actually going to try and "name my own price)! Otherwise, we'll ultilize LA's notoriously slow public transportation on the first day...

Day one (really night one) we'll hopefully be having a community dinner with our host, Ryan, and his great housemates!

Day two: We have tickets to the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson who tapes in the afternoon around 2:30 or 3. We're planning for a drive around Beverly Hills and The Grove that morning. And, Jen is scoping out for a good places to eat in Hollywood or West Hollywood.

Day three: Hopping over to Venice Beach for a day of sun (hopefully), a picnic beach lunch and people watching! Then, possibly dinner in Santa Monica.

Day four: Hanging out on Hollywood Blvd. (hopefully lunch at Skooby's Hot Dogs). Taking in sights such as the Hollywood sign, Grauman's Chinese Theater and the Walk of Fame! Then, it's to LAX for our over-night flight to Sydney!
