Day 13: 31/July/2006 LAX to Sapporo Japan
My short American trip was over.
I got up in 6:30am and went to LAX Airport by a share van at 8:00am.
There are few people in a weekday airport.
When I came to LAX, for flight hours of 9 hours,
I need flight hours in 10hours and half because there is influence of a current of air when I return to Japan.
It is one hour and 30 minutes from Tokyo to Sapporo.
It took 13 hours from LAX to home!!
and these are MY COLLECTION of this tour!!

Day 09: 27/July/2006 LosAngeles - LACMA / Weekly Sketchbook Session
I got up early a little today and at first went to Bank Of America.
I have been to an overseas bank sometimes. However, I am always tense.
I changed a currency for the dollar from the yen and deposited it.
This work was the greatest mission of this trip.
I came back from a bank and went to LACMA.
When I visited Los Angeles, an art museum to always visit is LACMA.
Devid Hockney exhibition is exhibiting now.
I like his small sketchbooks!!
I took a subway in the evening and went to StudioCity.
I was going to go to Prescilla's Coffee of Barmank by bus.
However, though I waited for one hour, the bus didn't come.
As a result, I went to Barbank on foot for 40 minutes.
I was able to meet a special guest this time.
