Anna in the City of Angels

Overall a mind-blowing experience, especially for a first time flyer and first time away from home by myself. The Kiwis in LA exhibition went really well, I got presented an award which was awesome and unexpected, thought I’d just get a handshake. I was well looked after by my home-stay family Graham and Debra Wong, kept me safe and informed. Met some very down to earth Ex Kiwis who live in America now, Sue Barry and Barbara Beattie- lovely people. I got to meet Bruce Willis, not exactly in person… a wax figurine! Experienced the Getty Centre = amazing. Got to hang out with the Californian/New Zealand consulate assistant which was cool and topped off with a day trip to Disneyland.

Then a slow flight back to reality and examinations!!!!
