Los Angeles...

I actually went to Santa Monica yesterday by the beach something I never seem to do. Saw the billboard for the Shah of Iran, odd it reminded me of growing up in the ’70’s and when I came to LA in 1979 all the cab drivers were doctors and academics who had fled Iran after the Shah had been overthrown. I have a memory of Persian’s being polite and nice unlike the cab drivers in LA now, Russian’s who try to fleece you and pretend not to speak english.

The other is the Mormon Building, quite stunning apart from the rubbish they preach inside...
