Looks like can't get away to LA ... L.A. Audio Show is only couple blocks from my old office on Imperial Hwy. I guess always next year :-)
I was once in LA and never will return again. Nothing there to see for me at all.
Filthy, old, neglected, unmanaged, unattractive, repulsive, depressive and beat up city (still feeling of that post-WW2 debris) and half-way down or more destructed buildings.
Where did you go? I lived in So Cal for 5 years, 2nd job after college
and had a GREAT time. Met some life long friends ... Got a Guards Red Porsche, no worries, no responsibilities ... simpler times :-) Mostly hung around PCH in Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach.
you left out "dangerous"
There are bad neighborhoods in all cities. I also lived in DC for several years for work and talk about dangerous, every other block is dangerous. Yikes!
