Today we're in LA, after a night at a very chi-chi hotel on Sunset Boulevard (its Sushi bar served a "Japanese Elvis Roll" - tempura banana and grilled eel with a satay sauce - that was surprisingly nice). We're just off to spend the day at the Getty Centre, up in the hills, looking at wonderful art and architecture.
Tonight we'll be in the air, skipping a day to arrive in New Zealand on Sunday morning.
So it's goodbye to all this, and hello to all that.
Steak and cheese pies, L&P, Tui Beer adverts, Speight's Southern Man and remembering to run over possums. It'll be good to be back in Godzone...
