We arrived at LAX at about 7.00am, and took the Super Shuttle to Hollywood; as check in time at our accommodation wasn't until 2.00 we needed to do something that was going to keep us awake. We put our bags in storage and set off to Universal Studios. Once we got to Universal City - we stopped off for Breakfast at Jody Moroni's for a hot dog topped with bolognaise and cheese. Sean tried out the all the rides (Jurassic Park - the Ride - The dinosaurs were from the Movie including a 50 ft T-Rex that almost ate him and then there was a 80 ft drop down the waterfall to the end; the next ride he conquered was Revenge of the Mummy, which was like the mighty mouse - but in the dark). He loved every minute of it. I went along on the Universal studios tour including the new King Kong 360 3D attraction, which we thought was pretty impressive. The hype was worth it. The tour also took us to the doorstep of some desperate housewives, as well as Norman Bates carrying out a body at Bates Motel, as well taking part in the earth-quake scene out of Bones and seeing some pretty cool fast and furious action. After getting through the introduction to the Terminator 2 3D experience - the actual experience was pretty good. The place was absolutely enormous. By this stage we were hitting the wall - so we thought we should get back to our hostel.

The chef for tonight, was making all you can eat Spaghetti for $6 which sounded and tasted perfect to 2, very jet lagged and exhausted people.

Besides international roaming not working - even though I activated it - everything else has run smoothly. Could be an early night tonight as there hasn't been much sleep since 4.00am Sunday Melbourne time.
