Los Angeles: Hello Hollywood

A day after arriving in California and still battling a serious bout of jetlag, I was off to visit the entertainment capital of the USA - Hollywood. Since it's a weekend finding a parking space is like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are just rows and rows of cars in the streets. As we search high and low for a parking space, I was treated to a driving tour of Hollywood.We passed by the famous  "HOLLYWOOD" signage and drove through the streets of Hollywood Blvd. After finding a parking spot, which is about 10 minutes walk to Grauman's Chinese Theatre with it's intricate oriental design and the cement imprints of the who's who of  Hollywood. Just beside it is the famous theater where the annual Academy Awards is staged - The Kodak Theater.There is also a part of the "Walk of Fame" right in front of  the Kodak Theater and Grauman's Chinese Theater. If you want to keep a nice remembrance of your trip in the entertainment capital, you can snap some photos of the moviestars impersonators.Yes, I did strike a pose with Marilyn Monroe.
