Los Angeles…things started off hecticly with the car keys disappearing in the elevator shaft. So we had to rent a second car after we tried to get the keys out with a magnet on a string. Things were looking more positive when we finally had some good food and wine at Mama D’s in Manhattan Beach. The next day we explored Abbot Kinney Boulevard with beautiful shops and eateries. We went for a short visit on Hollywood boulevard and went to the Grove afterwards.
Downtown Johannesburg…a city of extreme opposites: a city with very poor and very rich people. We visited the Apartheid Museum, went on a tour through Soweto, saw the houses of Mandela and Tutu and got a lot of historical background information. We also had a glimpse at the amazingly designed FNB Stadium.
