Back to Ron and Pat's Excellent Adventure in Los Angeles, La La Land.
Pat and I continue our walk on Hollywood Boulevard, enjoying the sights and sounds of the Friday night life. We encountered this demonstration of moonwalking on the Walk of Fame.
When I visited Pat in Toronto last August, by lucky coincidence it was the time of the Canadian National Exhibition. Another "street fair" which I have yet to post videos of (and I will). I did post a video or two of "India Night" which occurred just a few blocks down the street from where Pat lives in Toronto.
I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our little jaunt on Hollywood Boulevard.

Talking about getting both of my legs going, we decided to take the bus for the rest of the way back to the bed and breakfast where we were staying. We wanted to try the much vaunted public Los Angels public transportation.
I have to say we weren't disappointed at all. The bus came by in about ten minutes. While we waited we were talking to a young man (homeless) who was in L A looking for his acting break (hadn't found it yet). I didn't want to embarrass him by taking a video of him telling us his story. But it was an interesting story nonetheless. Just one more heartbreaking story of an individual seeking fame and fortune in this vibrant, beautiful, tawdry, hopeful and hopeless City of Angels.
By the way, Los Angeles just became the fourth city in which a stranger asked us if we were brothers. This was twice in Los Angeles. Once at the bus stop with the homeless young man wanna be actor and once at the Griffith Observatory. We were first asked if we were brothers when we were paying our bill at Nectar in Lewes, DE.
In November of 2013 when we were staying at the Latham Hotel in Philadelphia we were asked again. And last year, walking down the street in Toronto, one of Pat's neighbors asked if I was his brother. Well, I can say that Pat is my "brother" by a different mother. We have so much in common, it's uncanny. I've always heard it said we have a double in the world, I think I met mine in Pat.
