Okay, so now that we've been here in California for a few months, it's been high time that we get a lay of the land. So a couple of weeks ago we drove up to Ventura to check it out.
We heard it had a cool little downtown. It does.
What we didn't know was that every other store is a thrift shop.
In other adventuring, we also recently went to check out Griffith Park and observatory. We liked it there. Fantastic view. It's just north of L.A., along the same strip of mountains as the Hollywood sign.
Meanwhile, we also finally made it to my school's zoo. That's right. My school has a zoo.
The layout of the zoo caters more to the students than to visitors, so it was hard to get up close to the animals. I get it: they need to train to manage exotic animals. But despite being slightly disappointing, it still had its highlights.
What did not disappoint was the 'show,' which was a fantastic blend of information, passion, and awkwardness.
So that's it for now, stay tuned for some more adventures to come.
