|My Mum, my host Mum Pat, and my Dad, standing in front
of a fence belonging to the famous Griffith
Park Observatory in Hollywood. Unfortunately, my snapshot camera failed
to capture the breathtaking city lights of L.A. right behind their backs.
Go there yourself and take a look, if you don't believe me!
|Before the concert and also during the concert breaks,
I was able to meet a number of my pen pals from the Joni
Mitchell Discussion List (JMDL). Many of them had already partied for
two consecutive days in celebration of the 2 previous L.A. shows.
In this picture, these great people are represented by me, of course, and Mariana, who happens to be not only one of our youngest list members, but also a very talented and (obviously) good-looking person.
||View from Keys View (1581 m/ 5185 ft), one of the most famous vista points in Southern California. Keys View is located in Joshua Tree National Park. The view goes down into Coachella Valley, into the Palm Springs Area with Mt. San Jacinto in the background. The linear- shaped hills in the middle of the valley are actual surface traces of the San Andreas Fault.|
|Here's a tough question for you;: What is the name
of the plant featured in this picture?
(Clue: It's very abundant in "Joshua Tree National Park"!)
|My Mum and myself, having a good time strolling along Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs|
Climbing the hill,
because my sugars are showing too much!!!

|Who's watching who?!?|
|Flowers in front of the research institute at the
Center, one of the most amazing architectural landmarks I have visited
The museum opend in early 1998 and already has received countless praises. I think it's perfect. The setting. The buildings. The way the works are displayed. Just everything.
|Wherever you look -- at the Getty Center you will
always end up with a breathtaking view!
(view towards Beverly Hills, the Wilshire District and Downtown L.A. -- the Orange County mountains forming the hazy horizon)
|My own little Getty art...|
|This is originally a picture of a building at the Getty Center that was altered with the highly recommendable program Micrografx Picture Publisher. It's really amazing what you can do with a computer and a scanner these days!|
|This is a very important picture because it proves
I'm not the only one who ate a lot!
