What a great National Train Day I had! Hope you had a great day, too!

Jim and I made it over to Hollywood courtesy of the San Diego Trolley, Amtrak, and the Los Angeles Metro. I must say that after a day on the Los Angeles Metro, it has now risen to my #1 favorite mass transit system. They started building it in 1992, and I believe they did it right, and upcoming expansions will only make it better.

Hollywood was a great place to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there. The last time I went, which I think was in the mid-1990s, it was a prime piece of urban decay. I swore I would never go back. I knew that some big-time Hollywood stars had been leading the charge for urban renewal, and I believe they succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest expectations, so much so that Hollywood now is way overcrowded.

At one of the new malls, a six-story mall located at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, children were playing in one of those street fountains that shoots water out of the ground. I got a cute flash video:
