I was so excited to visit my friend Hanh in LA a few weeks ago. We decided to check out The Getty Center since I had never been there before. Although admission is free, parking is $15; but here is a quaint tram ride from the parking structure to the actual center. After getting off of the tram we were immediately enthralled by the majestic stone brick buildings. We walked through a photography exhibit then grabbed lunch from the food/coffee cart outside 'The Restaurant'. We sat down at one of the outside tables and enjoyed our food and beverages under the warmth of the sun. A majority of the afternoon was spent frolicking around the Central Garden, admiring the perfectly circular trimmed hedges in front of a waterfall, and the abundance and variety of flowers and foliage. We immersed ourselves in the rest of the numerous sculpture, painting, drawing, and photography exhibits the rest of our visit; and even got to observe and take a couple snapshots of Van Gogh's Irises! This is a definite stop when visiting LA!
