Down and Out in Beverly Hills

Los Angeles is sprawling. From the plane we could see just how low-density much of the city is, and - as we've already discovered - this means that it's difficult to get anywhere without a car.

Still, we wanted to see some of the classic LA sights, and the hostel helpfully provided an iternary, which we followed on Saturday. The 720 bus took us to Beverly Hills.

On foot LA seemed even more sprawling, and in the heat of the day (much hotter away from the sea) it seemed to take an age for us to walk the equivalent of two bus stops and connect with the 217, which headed to Hollywood. We got off at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, and immediately found ourselves on the Walk of Fame.

What trip to LA could be complete without seeing the Hollywood sign? There was a viewing platform in the Hollywood and Highland shopping centre that also houses the Kodak Theatre, where the Oscars are held.
