Los Angeles - Day 3

Los Angeles - Day 3 (11/17/2006)

Today we let someone else drive! (For the most part.) We took the Grand Tour of Los Angeles offered by Starline Tours, which visited (and drove past) many famous sites in L.A. We got back to the hotel late and drove to dinner at the vegetarian Indian restaurant Manas, a few blocks from USC, before retiring for the night.
