The Governator

בקטגוריות: Uncategorized

19 Oct 2006

The nice thing about listening to NPR in California is the chance to hear newsclips of the governor discussing current issues. It’s very childish, I know, to ignore anything Scharzenegger says and focus on his accent alone, but it’s just so hilarious to hear him discuss serious issues. And when he’s interviewed on a new […]

Car Update

After some back and forth, some progress was made: 1) I’m in LA, not far from the airport. Motel. 2) Car has been entrusted into the hands of janric, via the mediation of belvane. May their lines prosper and thrive. From here we’ll attempt to move it to the possession of my cousin. We’ll see. […]

Ok, now I’m screwed. Seems that at some point in my DMV transactions, in San Francisco, the lady at the DMV kept the car title to herself rather than giving it back to me. Without the title in hand, dealers can’t buy the car from me. Getting a new title is a matter of a […]

The shoreline Highway 1 along the Pacific ocean, from Monterey down to Los Angeles, really is as beautiful as everyone said it would be. Cliffs and beaches, the ocean itself. Great, really. But sometimes it pays off to look at the other side of the road. I find myself doing a double take, driving into the […]

I’ll be waiting for you.

Santa Monica

16 Oct 2006

Santa Monica downtown, Monday afternoon. Everyone is 17-25 and on their way from the beach, on their way to a party. Don’t people work here? More Starbucks-per-square-inch than in Manhattan, and that’s saying alot. Movie theaters and pizza parlors, city-provided free WiFi and street musicians everywhere. So far, LA is living up to it’s party-town […]

More Traffic

בקטגוריות: Uncategorized

16 Oct 2006

There are two distinct differences in how the US traffic system treats traffic lights. The first is the Right Turn – to avoid having to build those little right-turn lanes that we have in Israel, the law states that you are simply allowed to turn right at any intersection even on a red light – […]

Traffic

As they say, the big difference lies in the little details. Take street signs, for instance. Oh, they have the usual iconograms here in the US, the strangely universal octogonal and capitalized STOP sign, the intuitive No Right Turn and the ever-popular Road Work sign heralding another highway slowdown. But in the US more often […]
