The Getty

Hello! I am back from my short vacation/trip. I have a bunch of photos to share and I’ll get to that once I’ve finished unpacking and sorting through photos.

For right now, here are photos from my quick trip to The Getty with my cousins, Angie & Krystle! Thursday night, my family from Canada arrived. After picking them up from LAX, we had dinner at BJ’s Brewhouse. Friday morning, my brothers still had class so we went to the Getty since Krystle and Angie wanted to see it.

The museum opened at 10AM and we got there exactly 30 minutes after but it was packed with little kids and high school students on field trips. We waited in line for a bit and we made our way to the top of the hill in the tram. The ride lasted for five minutes but it had such an amazing view of the 405 freeway.

The museum had really cool sculptures and artwork on display. They had the North, South & West pavilions, and each one had a specific theme to it. The South focused on artwork from Greece and Rome dating from the 1500s; the North contained historical manuscripts that were left in their original language and form. The West had more sculptures and the gift shop.

I could definitely not forget about this great view of Los Angeles. Pretty sure I was more excited about this than the pieces of art. I may live in LA but I’m not a fan of it… this view was great though.

When we got back into town, we decided to have a late lunch at Sushi Kuni, an all-you-can-eat sushi bar. Krystle went crazy and ordered 6 rolls on top of the nigiri and appetizers we got… it was a very interesting and filling lunch.

That same afternoon, the crew left for Newport Coast. Angie and I stayed behind and waited for Chris to get off work, and we drove to the villas together.

I’ll get around to posting about Newport but mind you, it was such an amazing place. The Getty was pretty rad too – no entrance fee, $15 for parking and the views of LA were pretty amazing!
