Remember the song "It Never Rains in California"? Well, Pat and I brought good luck to Los Angeles during our visit because it rained when we visited this past January.

We had made arrangements to meet our friend Nadege in Little Tokyo in downtown Los Angeles. A gentle rain was falling.

Both Pat and I have outwear that is rain proof. Nadege brought her umbrella. She was not deterred by the rain at all. In fact she was quite happy that Los Angeles was finally getting some rain. She said California has had a drought for three years now and desperately needs rain.
Pat stopped in a Japanese book store. Pat loves Japanese interior furniture design. Pat was in his element. Pat likes the clean look of Sixties retro design, a la Jetsons.

We were meeting Nadege for lunch (photos and videos of which I will post in a subsequent blog). Again I have to thank Nadege for being just the perfect hostess. How wonderful to meet in person someone who has been commenting on my blog.
Prior to lunch Nadege took us for a tour in a nearby Japanese garden. Isn't it amazing that even on a gray, dreary and rainy day how genuine friendships can brighten a day? Also, the fresh and vibrant colors of the Japanese garden added to the specialness of this day.
Just how lucky am I to spend an afternoon in downtown Los Angeles with two delightful people like Nadege and Pat? It just doesn't get any better than this folks.
