Las Vegas Trip - Day 7 (Apr.25.2011)

It took more than a month to write this post because I didn't want to finish the trip...
Day 7 is the "sad" last day of our trip. Everything has an end, so was our trip...


The first thing we had to do was to drive back to LA safely. On the way back to LA, we were very quiet in the car and just drove the car. You know how we were sad, right?






On our way to Las Vegas and way back to LA, we saw many signs about "Peggy Sue Diner" and I thought we should visit there. However, I made a mistake... I saw "P" something and "Diner" sign and turned to that direction. Actually, it was the opposite direction where correct Peggy Sue Diner was located... We found was "Penny's Diner." We just tried that diner to have the last lunch in the US.

Our flight was 12:40 midnight, we had some time in LA, so we did "very basic" Hollywood sight seeing. Our honeymoon 20 years ago was to visit LA at that time Kodak Theater wasn't there. We joined guided tour to see inside of the theater. I did this when I had a business trip last year, but I wanted to take my wife. I tried to translate what the guide told us, but my translation was not very good...

The next place we visited was Farmers Market. It was fun to see different foods, etc. Light My Fire was very specialized store with many kinds of spicy hot sauces. One of the bottles had  famous terrorist's face on its label.

The last dinner in the US was steak. The GPS was useful to find restaurant and we went to Black Angus Steakhouse maybe it was located in Burbank. How many times did I eat steak during this trip? I don't know... I told one of the waitresses that it was the last night of our 20 year marriage anniversary trip, so they gave us happy anniversary song and very sweet dessert.



Our very happy trip was finally coming to an end, ah... We returned the car and took a shuttle to the airport. One week rental and the total drive distance 760 miles (1222km) and the rental fee was only $296.40. (Company's discount rate was applied.)

The last luxury, we were in business class on our return flight ;-)

Thank you so much to all the great friends in the US. We don't know when, but we will visit US again!
