On our western adventure a few weeks ago we drove by the Walt Disney Studios - got out and looked through the gate - a security guard came out and talked to us for a few minutes - he asked my daughter if she can name all the dwarfs holding up the building - and she nailed it - we could see some of the older buildings in the back from Walt Disney’s days - I wish they did tours - how epic would that be…

The City

Grand Central Station and got wind they’re coming on
And the goodness yesterday
No one round oh and I still recognize
Her after all these years and she still looks the same
She still looks the same

The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling
The city keeps on going
We just keep on rolling, rolling on, rolling on

So while in California I kept seeing all these people with their cameras on the end of sticks taking selfies and movies of themselves - I then coined the term Narcisstick - or I thought I did - because it was already thought of - the Narcis Stick High-res

Made it home from our travels - touched down at 12:30 last night and didn’t get to bed till 4am - up at 8 to go to work - and of course work is busy - time to catch up - it’s so nice being around consistent wifi that actually works - that’s one of the crazy things about travel in today’s world - we are so reliant on the internet but wifi access is so difficult - if you can get it then it is slow and drops off all the time - if you just use your data plan on your phone then you quickly use it up if you are uploading a bunch if photos and blogging - I guess vacation should be a vacation from everything…

We got to visit the set of Friends today - and sit on the couch in Central Perk - it was actually pretty emotional and very surreal…

Life is full of extremes

We spent the day at a movie studio - seeing all the behind the scenes - and where a lot of movies and tv shows are filmed - drove past the Disney Studios - got out to take pictures - made our way to Griffith Park to find the merry-go-round that Walt Disney used to take his daughters to - where he got the idea for Disneyland - while my daughter was riding I was thinking about how the world changed because of this place - about Walt Disney coming here - about my daughter being on the same merry-go-round as his daughters - about how fast she was growing up - about life and vacations and time - then my phone buzzed - and I saw the news about Robin Williams… High-res
