In the previous entry I was mentioning the space in which people live in Southern California. Here is only a small view of the spread out town. This is why the Automotive Museum is such an obvious place, a necessity in Los Angeles. I've gone back to the Griffith Observatory at dusk to a welcome hike, since I have been sitting in a car most of the time to try to explore and understand the spirit of this gigantic urban assembly. From this sight, you can appreciate the distances and realize you cannot walk around like you do in most big cities of Europe. For miles, you will see rows of houses looking quite similar. It is of course inspiring from above, as shown here, but down in these avenues, it can be discouraging to start a walk. I don't think the mayor of the city could decide that cars are not welcome, as it has been the case in Paris. Here the rules are indeed very different from those in a very old town where winding streets are narrow and space precious.
