Which coast is this?
I'm staying in downtown LA. While I've visited Los Angeles a lot, I don't think I've ever been downtown. I remember aunt Joan telling my parents that she never went downtown anymore. I believe I was about four years old at the time.
The world is getting flatter. I got a decent price on the hotel (Priceline), but I'm paying more to park the car than I'm paying to rent it. This is California, not Manhattan: you're supposed to have a car, right?
