On August 9, Andi and I went on an LA adventure. We covered the Grand Central Market, saw the Angel’s Flight, looked at the view from the Perch and walked all of Placita Olvera.
We bought a day pass to use the metro, & since we had a TAP card already, it cost us only $5; without a TAP card it’s $6.
We took the Gold Line from Andi’s house to Union Station; from there we took the Red Line to Pershing Square, where we walked to Grand Central Market. When we got there I realized that I had been there before. It used to look like a Mercado you saw in Mexico, but now it has a more modern flair to it.
There was plenty to eat, but I decided to have a shrimp cocktail, Mexican style. Other things to eat that I saw. They also sell alcohol, which can be consumed at the establishment. There are plenty of vendors, and I will definitely be coming back.
We saw the Angels Flight which is the shortest funicular in the world. It’s supposed to be open every day of the year, but it was closed for refurbishment when we went.
Next, we went to the Perch, even though I had just recently been there the night before. It was so beautiful to see everything in the day time. We sat down and relaxed while a drank a sangria and she had a hipster beer.
We walked back to the station and got back to Union Station;
from there we walked to Olvera street and enjoyed a walk through the Little Mexico of Los Angeles. It was really awesome. I had Papas preparadas and a Churro filled with La Lechera.
It was a lovely and relaxing day. I would recommend both of these to everybody!
