Prvi dnevi v ZDA


Moj prvi blog z kraja ‘zločina”. Na letališče v Los Angelesu sem prispel ob petih popoldne, glede na to da sem hotel prihranit nekaj denarja obenem pa malo pretegnit noge po dolgem letu, sem se odločil da se peš odpravim do hostla, ki je oddaljen samo 5 kilometrov. No, to je bila prva napaka na poti, kajti promet okoli letališča je en sam velik kaos in vsi uporabljajo javni prevoz. Največji problem je, da ni površin za pešče, zato si lahko predstavljate kako je izgledalo moje prečkanje štiripasovnice z nahrbtnikom na ramenih, ki je večji od mene 🙂 Mislim da so takoj vedeli, da sem turist 🙂

 

Po dveh urah mi je končno uspelo prit do soseske ( Inglewood ) kjer sem imel hostel. Ker pa nisem bil prepričan, kje je točna lokacija sem se odločil, da za pot povprašam varnostnika, ki je ravnokar prihajal iz Burger King-a. Seveda mi je rade volje razložil kam se moram usmerit ampak me je opozoril, da glede na to da se je že temnilo, naj malo pospešim tempo, ker tu ni varno hoditi po mraku. Tako pa sem ostal brez svojega prvega hamburgerja v ZDA 😉

 

Včerašnji dan pa sem se preživel bolj kot ne ob morju, obiskal sem Venice Beach in pa Santa Monica Downtown.

Po ogledu tamkajšnjih znamenitosti sem se odpravil nazaj do hostla, medtem ko sem čakal na avtobus, sem mimoidočega gospoda vprašal, ali je dejansko to sploh prava postaja, seveda sva se zapletla v klepet v katerem sem mu omenil s kakšnim namenom sem tu, ker pa ni bil prepričan kateri avtobus vozi v mojo smer je vztrajal pri tem, da mi pokliče taksi, ki me je odpeljal kamor sem želel in to na njegov račun! Kot kaže res drži to kar pravijo o Američanih, da so izredno prijazni ljudje.

So far so good 🙂

Se “slišimo” v torek, ko prispem v Portland.

 

Hej, evo, še en prevod:

My first days in the USA

My first blog from the “scene of the crime”. I arrived at the Los Angeles airport at 5 p.m., and since I wanted to save some money and at the same time stretch my legs a little bit after a long flight, I decided to walk to the hostel that was located only 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) away. This was my first mistake on my journey, because the traffic around the airport is one big chaos and everybody uses public transportation. The biggest problem is that there are no pedestrian areas, so you can imagine what it looked like, crossing a four-lane highway with a backpack on my back that is bigger than me . I think they knew right away that I’m a tourist

After two hours, I finally managed to get to the neighborhood (Inglewood) where my hostel was located. However, since I wasn’t sure what the exact location was, I decided to ask a security guard who was just on his way from Burger King. Of course, he was happy to explain which direction I should take, but he warned me that I should walk a bit faster, because it was already getting dark and it is not a safe area to walk in after dusk. So this was how I was left without my first hamburger in the USA 😉

I spent yesterday more or less at the sea, I visited Venice Beach and Santa Monica Downtown.

After checking out the local landmarks, I went back to the hostel and while waiting for the bus, I asked a passerby if this was even the right bus station. Naturally, we started talking and I mentioned with what purpose I am here, and because he wasn’t sure which bus goes in my direction, he insisted on calling me a taxi that brought me where I needed to go and the man paid for it! I really seems to be true what they say about Americans that they are extremely friendly people.

So far so good

I’ll “talk” to you on Tuesday when I arrive in Portland.
