More from LA

On Wednesday I decided to see the sight of Simi Valley (that's not a typo, they only have the one). So off I went to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. The rumor was that it was a mere mile from the hotel, not too bad a walk I thought... 2 miles later I reached the bottom of a mile long hill up to the library. Still, the walk was not too bad, and the view was very nice.

The library itself really wasn't too bad, I actually got to walk through the old Air Force One plane that had been used by 6 presidents. No wonder they upgraded it, it was quite small (apparently you could fit 4-1/2 of the old planes in the current plane). One other interesting thing that I saw at the Library was the Berlin wall... yes, the actual Berlin wall.

On Thursday night, it was time to head back home, with a brief stop over in Las Vegas, where they even have slot machines in the airport...
