US diAry Entry 19 – Day 17

There was something in the water today. Woke up at 7am, then passed back out again. Woke up again at 8:45am and had a shower and got ready for the hotel breakfast. Pete and Reece were still passed out when I ate, so I woke them up, ate then went back to sleep, waiting for the other 2 to eat and get ready. But I was out like a light until 11am. Turns out they went to sleep after breakfast as well, so I woke them up and we hit Hollywood Blvd.

It was quiet, so we walked in to Madame Tussauds, next door to the Kodak Theatre. We spent about an hour looking around, then headed to Hard Rock Cafe for lunch.

With time to kill, we strolled across the road to the Guinness World Records exhibit. What a waste of $18. It took us 5 minutes to walk in and walk back out. Nothing special at all.

So, taking to the Blvd, we checked out the pavement for stars. 1/2 of the names I didn’t even know as they were “behind the scenes” or old names. But one I did get a kick out of:

As we walked around more, we could see the Hollywood sign through the shopping centre.

It was about 3:30pm and for some reason, we were all tired, so we walked back to the hotel and chilled in the air conditioning, eating and drinking from the mini bar that was complimentary.

Tomorrow – Warner Bros Studio Tour and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson studio audience! Better be more exciting than today.
