Well, it appears I’ve made it in one piece to “Rice-a-Roni” town.
The festival doesn’t start until tomorrow evening but there are lots of activities planned out by other bloggers.
I’m actually writing this post on the BART (the San Fran subway) so I dont forget a few points I’ve picked up while getting here.
1. Parking at the airport in LA is a wise decision. I was going to take those shuttle vans but they wanted to pick me up three and a half hours before me flight! For a domestic flight that is only 50 minuets anyway? I think not. Parking is only 10 bucks a day and I the shuttles to the lot are always there. The control freak in me is tamed.
2.I love trains. I wish LA had them (boy with a city as big as ours, we sure need it!). I just hate traffic and trains tend to be prompt.
3. Virgin America is a fine airline. Although I do think the lighting inside the airplane is very “nightclub”, it was such a breeze to check in and board. Seriously the only place I had to wait was at security (which is the airports fault). I hate nothing more than standing in line. Plus, they had snazzy screens and even wifi.
4. Hilton is a fine hotel chain. My uncle does work for them in Asia and Australia, but I didn’t get a discount or anything. But they are very accomidating and friendly.
5. Food bloggers are more like photographers. They take loads of pictures of food and I wonder when they get to enjoy it. Anyhow, I am a horrible photographer so I’ll direct some of the eats I’ve come by to this lady. She does an awesome job and shes a very awesome person to match.
Tomorrow I’m going to a photography session another blogger is hosting and maybe a yoga class (although it will be A LOT of bloggers coming so I dont know how that will work out).
I think I found Uncle Jesse, and he told me to tell you, “have mercy”.
