The next day was a day for sightseeing. We headed towards USC where unluckily, graduation was going on, which meant that finding parking was already hard. Finally we found parking lot and head plenty of time to walk around across campus.

So strange to see all the kids graduating after so many years, makes you feel a bit nostalgic, and makes you wanna go back just for a few weeks.

After about 2 hours on campus we headed to China Town and had breakfast, oh yeah, Dim Sum including Chicken Feet. Not something Europeans are really used to, but then when in LA, you should be doing the real thing with all the little cultural things.

After this rather strange meal we headed up to see the Hollywood sign. We were driving around first just to enjoy the scenery and looked at some of the better areas of LA. I could definitely see myself living in one of those places one day :)

Anyhow, we barely found the trail to the Hollywood sign and then, sure enough we got lost in the hills, but it was nevertheless a real nice walk. It's always nice up there, as you get a little break from the craziness of the city.

We still had enough time to visit Hollywood an see the footprints of all the movie stars at Men's Chinese Theater. Finally, we grabbed dinner at In n' out burger, a great finish for this day.
