We started the day with a nice unhealthy breakfast at Jerry's and then headed down to Venice beach. We wanted to get some work done before taking off the next day for sightseeing. Yes, you must wonder how one could possibly work in Venice, but then there are some pretty good coffee shops. The place we ended up working at, was called 'Cow's End' and was awesome, so I'll definitely write a travel tip about it. One nice thing about the Cow's End is that it's a hang out for people like us. Pretty much everybody was on their laptops doing some work, heading down to the counter once in a while to order some more of that yummy coffee, which is so rare to find in the US :)

Of course we did go for a quick walk and were then comfortably sitting in a couch working :)

While we were working, Axel was getting drunk by the beach - axellent! Well, at least he was walking about 6 Miles so that makes up for it.

Anyhow, the day ended with 4 hungry guys in shorts walking into the next Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and killing about half a cow, thank god to my visa card points. We had the 4 cowboy steaks, some appetizers and plenty of sides, yummy.
