Freak Show @ the beach!

10 september 2009 Sarah

Hope you had a great labor day weekend! I had some studying to catch up on so I didn´t really do much, but we went to Venice Beach on saturday, a well-known beach in the Los Angeles area. Venice is known as a hangout for the creative and artistic, but oh my god what a freak show it was! Weird people everywhere, so much to look at! There was actually a show called ”the freak show” with a two-headed turtle, cyclops pigs ( born with one eye in the middle of their face and so on and so on…we were to scared to go in, maybe next time haha.

It was a pretty fun place though, the beach was beautiful and some of the apartments on the beach were really nice! Venice Beach is actually a place for many film shootings, last one I saw was ”I love you, man” in which one of the scenes was from the Venice Beach bordwalk.

I had two quizzes in school this week, and it was a lot harder than I thought it would be! One of the quizzes was actually bigger than most of my final exams back home which came as a sursprise to me (not like a christmas-eve-yay-surprise, more like a dead-fly-in-my-coffee-sursprise), it was pretty hard and so many questions! I did ok though. But unfortunately I´m coming to realize that I do have to study pretty hard this year, which wasn´t in my original plan.

I have to do a medical exam for my SCUBA class this week, NOT looking forward to it at all. It´s like a whole day at a doctors office doing all kinds of test including lung X-ray, bloodwork and other stuff that I just hate. I might just drop the SCUBA class instead. Oh, me and Kim are thinking about getting a car. When I lived in Miami, I did more than fine not having a car. It´s not the same here. You HAVE TO have a car in California. The bus traffic is just useless here, it takes an hour to get a cab and man, do they stare at you when you walk or ride your bike. So we might just get a car.

Here are some pics from this weekend, and before I take off : CONGRATS to my dear friends HANNA and OLLE back home, they had a baby boy last week and he´s so cute!

    Kan jag få en tvehövdad sköldpadda i födelsedagspresent?

    Haha, bra beskrivet där! Jag var helt i chocktillstånd när vi åkte till Venice. Trodde det skulle vara en lite finare strand… Not so much visade det sig=)
