About Los Angeles
This year February, i was in #LasAngles and got one day free for some sightseeing. I decided to go to Universal Studio. Being a non working day, It was a lot of crowd there. I started with the Simpson ride first and quite enjoy it. Then i was waiting in the queue for the tour bus of Universal Studio, where they take everyone to show around the sets of Hollywood and a lot more.There was one Korean girl standing next to me in the line and she requested if her friends can join in the line. I was ok with it so i said sure not a problem. She called her other Korean friend who joined her. After few minutes they asked if other friends join too, so i just smiled. I have been to Korea many times so i knew some basic Korean words. I just greeted them saying "anyohaseyo"(which means hello in Korean). They were more excited than surprised and then we started interacting throughout the ride. I came to know that two of them(Jeni and Kate) were settled in NYC since birth and visited other friend(Mini) who was settled in LA.As i was alone so they invited me to join them for the rest of the day. Mini was living in LA from a long time and had been to the theme park many times, so was the best local person who could help me :)

Grand Central Market
Situated in the heart of Downtown LA, this market opened in 1917 and has been operating since. The Grand Central Market has changed with the passing years. It has around 90-plus vendors selling a wide variety of products such as baked goods, coffee, cheese, etc. This historic landmark serves as a display of the cultural mix of cuisines in LA. It's 30,000 sq. ft. marketplace comprises of a food emporium and a retail marketplace. Sometimes public events are also held here. I walked through the market to feel the energy of the place and over zealously purchased a saccharine cup of iced coffee that I immediately swapped for a single origin brew from G&B Coffee.
After the studio, we hired a Lyft to take us around town. We hit the jackpot and had a hilarious Armenian driver who sang Raj Kapoor songs and cursed the Americans while he drove us through Mulholland drive where all the stars live, down to Beverly Hills and finally dropped us off at the very fancy Rodeo drive. We ate lunch at 208 Rodeo - posh but not snooty. Good food.
