I've been living in Los Angeles for 8 months!!!! Last fall when I moved here for work, I had never even visited the state of California much less the city of L.A. Friends and family worried as I prepared to move 3,000 miles across the country to a city where I did not know anyone. I also felt a little afraid. I am so happy that I did not make fear stop me, and that I am living in and enjoying L.A.
Part of being new to a city is the excitement you get from visiting new sites and discovering new places/gems. It's like being a local tourist. Last week I visited L.A.'s Getty Center.
Nestled in the mountains of Santa Monica, this outdoor museum features architecture, gardens, and views overlooking Los Angeles. The English language does not have enough words to capture the beauty of the Getty so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. If you are ever in L.A., it's a must visit. Actually it is now the first on my list of places to see in L.A.
