This was the first trip I’ve taken in a while where I was not on assignment or had a particular assignment in mind.  I was in Los Angeles in May for a family wedding, so I got to play tourist for a few days.  I strolled along Hollywood Boulevard and The Walk of Fame, the first time in more than 20 years.

It’s not really my thing, but I walked along Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills again.  Politics aside, I visited the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library with its wonderful exhibits and one of several presidential libraries I’ve visited over the years.  And for the first time, I visited LACMA, a very impressive fine arts museum.  Here are some photos of my visit.  Cheers!
