There wasn't much sleeping in. First of all the horns start honking promptly at 7AM. And the continental breakfast was only offered 6:30AM-9:30AM and if you weren't out there by 7AM everything was picked over... and I wasn't going to walk out there looking like this...
We went on a trolley ride, we were suppose to ride a double decker bus but it was too stinking hot to sick out in the sun! The trolley rides was loads of fun, we had a wonderful tour guide who had a great sense on humor! Here are some pics from that.
These two buildings cracked me up. The bottom was parking garages where the cars are backed in and they look like they could fall right off. According to our tour guide only two cars have ever fallen off, and they were both for movies! The architect didn't like corners and there is a heated marina underneath it where residents can keep their boats in the water year round. Wonder what the rent is like there?
You can see the "skydeck" if you look closely on the left hand side, those tiny blimps on the side on the building, where you can actually stand on and it's like your on air. Again, NO THANKS! I don't like heights, matter of fact one of my friends posted a pic of the view from the skybox and posted it on Facebook, my exact comment was: I think I'm going to be sick!
On the tour we met a man and his sons. They were from Mexico and we enjoyed talking with them very much.
This is Jose and his sons Imanol (17) and Xavier (7). When I asked if I could take their picture so I could show my children the nice people we met they were gracious to say yes and then they wanted to take ours, exchange email and keep in touch. Which we have already begun doing.
The views of the city from out near the lake were AMAZING!
I've got two more days to share...later.
