When we left the Mar Vista section of Los Angeles, we hit out for distant lands.  When we arrived in Sydney Australia, the first thing we went to see was Australia’s biggest book store. 

We wanted to get some information about the book store and we chatted up a young girl who was working as a sales clerek there.  We told her about our trip to Australia and she said she wanted to go out into the world and see things such as the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles.

That Museum was within walking distance of the apartment in Mar Vista.

She sure proved the old saying about the “grass is always greener . . .”

Chicken Boy Statue

June 8, 2009


Running around taking Car-spotting pictures for this Car-spotting blog, we see many famous and/or unusual statues so we will use them for a change of pace from time to time.  This “Chicken Boy Statue” is well known in the Los Angeles area, but may not be famous as far as residents of Canberra are concerned.  They however are in no position to castigate any other city’s unusual statues.
