A Ve(ry) Nice Day
Riding a bicycle down a palm tree lined beach under a flawless blue sky... That is pretty much the image that would pop into my mind whenever I would here the letters L.A.
That dream became a reality as Kristina and I cycled from Santa Monica to Venice Beach.
We cycled through Santa Monica, past the iconic pier and down the Marvin Braude Bike Trail as I caught up with my dear kiwi friend who has recently become an Angelino.
Venice Beach... It is funky, eccelctic, and a little bit weird, and I absolutely LOVE it. You will see anything and everything here; from bulked-up gym junkies to street performers to stoners.
Like a mixed bag of lollies, the people strolling around Venice come in all kinds of flavours. It is a pretty much the ideal place for vox pops interviews and social experiments as the crowd is such a random and diverse mix of people. Kristina and I were randomly filmed for a magicians youtube channel as he swallowed a balloon in front of us and then asked for our numbers. (See 3:41)
