i will never forget asking a small business owner, "do you have a towel of a california bear that's not smoking a joint?" #thanksforthememories

griffith observatory, los angeles, california
GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY - one of my favorite memories of my first trip to LA, two weeks after meeting alex for the first time in sardinia, italy. a fantastic (and free) spot to catch a spectacular sunset over the city. and on a rainy day, you'll have the place entirely to yourself -- an otherworldly experience in a jammed city (like having disney world all to yourself), clouds be damned.

i made alex walk off breakfast by climbing up the culver city stairs. crowds of ultra-fit folk in spandex and athletic gear, and alex and i with full bellies in jeans.
