Due to a traffic jam, we arrived one and a half hour to late at the Warner Bros. Studios for joining the sitcom The Ranch with Ashton Kutcher. We had printed studio tickets with us but the lady at the gate was very strict: no entrance anymore despite our reservations. But Desiré is a fighter if she wants something badly. So she talked with the security men near the entrance of gate 2 where the sitcom took place. A miracle happened. One of the security men called Jennifer, the sergeant of the security department. AND WE WERE IN! They brought us with a special car and we felt treated like vips. We got entrance to the stage and it was great to be part of the epsiode 'Things Change' of The Ranch. The actors were very serieus and repeated some scenes again and again. In the middle of september we were emerged into the world of chrismas trees, snow and jingle bells. At the end we shook hands with Ashton Kutcher!!! For next time if we want to join the Ellen Degeneres show we can contact Jennifer...how wonderful is that!
The day after our adventure at the Warner Bros. Studios we bought some breakfast at Cafe Bonaparte at Hermosa Beach and ate our croissants, yoghurt and blue berries on the beach joined by a cappuchino. We spend some time at the beach and had lunch at Tin Roof. Tin Roof is a nice place opposite the Manhattan Village shopping mall. Later on we drove to downtown LA. We had tickets for the exposition of Cindy Sherman in the new museum The Broad. Anytime a new museum opens in Los Angeles, it's a big deal. The Broad, though, has been a monumental moment in recent LA history thanks to the museum's free admission, distinctive design and big-ticket collection. It's yet another landmark to prove to the world that LA is a city rich with cultural institutions. The contemporary art museum is the public home for Eli and Edythe Broad's collection of over 2,000 post-war works. Though only about 250 of those pieces of art will be on display at once, it's still a lot to take in. The construction of the building is beautiful and also a work of art!
We had a short visit at the Ace Hotel downtown LA afterwards. Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles originally built as the United Artists Building and later known as the Texaco Building is a 243 ft (74 m), 13-story high rise hotel and theater building located at 937 South Broadway downtown LA. It was the tallest building in the city for one year after its completion in 1927, and was the tallest privately owned structure in Los Angeles until 1956. Its style is Spanish Gothic, patterned after Segovia Cathedral in Segovia, Spain. On the rooftop you can also find a bar and pool. The time we were there it was packed with people. A good spot for hipsters.
Los Angeles...you suprised us again! Till soon...
