New Years Day started for me with an early morning trip to the laundromat whilst Brig and the boys enjoyed a sleep in of sorts. Just across the road, but having been chastised by family for jaywalking (Americans haven't learned how to yet) I clocked the extra 200m to use the nearest crossing. Haven't used a laundromat since England or Europe somewhere with mum circa 1971!
Our shopping day then started with me remembering to order a minivan this time - having had to squeeze 5 of us in to a cab yesterday am. Don't know what the fuss was about, I had plenty of room in the front. At least I got in to the right side, having startled cab drivers on the first two days.
One for the boys today, leaving Brig in the dust for purchases. Nothing major, but some clothes bargains here and there and Will maintaining the Sydney Bremners penchant for brightly coloured shoes.
We lunched at Farmers Markets, a fascinating collection of American style eating houses, majoring in meat, as most do. I'm not sure vegetables have made it over here yet.
Finished the day at Rodeo Drive where we got a glimpse of how the other half live. And not badly is the answer. A very enjoyable day, and an early start for Vegas tomorrow. Brig's planning faultless to date, and we are looking forward to seeing Sam on Thursday.
