all my suitcases made it, sweet!
While in Los Angeles I'd stay at Dan's. I was arriving early and he'd pick me up from the airport, but a couple of days ago the flight from Lima was delayed and he was afraid it'd happen the same to me. In that case, he wouldn't be able to meet me at the airport, oh no! But no worries, super Keith to the rescue! Fortunately the flight landed on time and Dan could pick me up. Great start!

Once at Dan's I contacted Keith who was waiting for my call. I wanted to let him know that I made it! It was so nice to listen to his voice, finally! I was surprised he recognized me right away. How so? Well, it wasn't difficult at all after seeing a strange code area on his cellphone, hahaha. After the red eye flight I was a bit tired, but after a shower things became perfect.
Aloha Keith!
Who wants to sleep where there are so many things to do and people to meet? Definitely, not me ;)

Keith was in El Segundo and has already met Sue and another TB. I didn't know this mysterious guy at that time. They all would come for me in half an hour or whatever it takes with the crazy traffic in Santa Monica, which I didn't know could be so bad...  I was ready and went downstairs, but the guys were stuck in traffic, pfff. Well, that gave me some time to walk around my neighborhood for the next 4 days. It was so nice! Dan lives just 5 blocks away from Santa Monica Pier, sweet!

I was just walking down the street holding Minigunther, when a guy approached to me. He thought that Minigunther was a real dog, one of this miniature ones. We started to lalugh and chatted for a while. He even tried to speak Spanish when I told him where I was from. Yep! Meeting friendly people, what a nice way to start my days in L.A.

Then the guys arrived. Finally I would meet Keith! Aloha Keith! I saw another familiar face: Sue's. We have been in touch for quite a while on TB and also on FB. It was great to finally see her face to face and last but not least, I met the misterious TB: Jerome. The 3 of them have already met before, but it was my 1st time. Nice to meet you, Jerome! Another TB was already waiting for us in Hollywood, so we left Santa Monica hoping it wouldn't take us too long to arrive there...
