So this was my first time in LA / California and didnt really know what to expect other than the things you hear from friends, media, and movies. Some random thoughts as I get back to the cold.

Minus traffic LA is great so far

Houses:

they are gorgeous. It was refreshing to see other type of buildings. The wanted-to-be architect in me started analyzing everything.

Entrances are the best.

Soon-to-be millionaires from tech IPOs will look into LA as one of the place to move too.

Things to watch for: real estate, affordable housing, homelessness, food halls, water problems, ect.,

Work:

Most people pick an area and do everything there.

Live there, have meetings there, eat there, and hangout there.

Food:

It's faster and easier to have things delivered to you than buying/making it by yourself.

Expensive but wide variety of options from cuisines to type of meat.

People:

Love the diversity! Approachability is on a scale between NYC and Chicago.

Network/smartphone:

I don't what was going on but my smartphone/network failed me multiple times.

Any of these could be a reason: ATT's recent 5G(e) roll out, 2 year old phone, ride sharing apps sucking up battery, and taking too many pictures.

Art:

It's everywhere! Graffiti, murals, and free museums for all types of artists.

Clothes:

I now get why crop tops are a thing.

I have never seen that much emphasis on (luxury) branded items before.

Cars:

You shouldn't be surprised if you spot 10 different luxury cars with in 5 minutes.

I don't understand why there aren't more/better car pooling options.

Weed:

A child is going to grow up thinking it's a normal thing (smell).

    @itsabhinaya Sounds interesting. I will be in LA this weekend for a training event. I shall brace myself for the traffic and weed smell. :)
