Next, my dad used to live in Los Angeles and we would go to the Getty any time we had company in town so I grew a weird hatred for the place because of it. Really amazing architecture though! I’m sure I would appreciate the place more now that I’m a bit older.

  4. […] July, so I picked the white-blue-yellow instead. I only wish I hadn’t donated my red striped espadrilles, because they would be perfect for this (but then again they’re really, really uncomfortable, […]
