West Coast Chronicles: Downtown Los Angeles

Downtown Los Angeles was my first destination upon arrival.  Right then and there, my tour had started.  Here’s my tour of Downtown LA in pictures.

Following the local time zone is advised to avoid or help reduce jetlag.  As such, despite being in flight for almost an entire day and my body telling me it’s already late at night, I had to stay up and defer sleeping.  But there’s one thing you can’t defer—eating!  My first snack upon arrival wasn’t really interesting to talk about.  But the sights of Downtown LA is!

Don’t you just love wide sidewalks?

Not all buildings are skyscrapers of course

Grand Central Market is one of the more interesting spots we visited…

…and found some really affordable but high quality grapes for just $1.00/lb

…there are also other affordable items around

The Grammy Museum with The Ritz-Carlton (made popular in the Philippines for the strangest of reasons)

Meanwhile, our hotel also offered an interesting breakfast option: make your own waffle!

Interestingly, the hottest temperature I’ve ever experienced occurred here in Downtown LA.  Temperature reached at least 100°F (37°C) when we were touring, but it’s much different compared to Metro Manila as humidity is much lower.  You hardly feel the heat if you’re under the shade and you also hardly sweat.  Under direct sunlight though, it’s pretty much like Metro Manila! 🙂
