back to chicago. 20 degrees to 0 degrees lol..

we went to venice beach before our flight and cycling.
my vacation will be over sooooooon!!!!
today is my last day in california.
we've been in las vegas for the past 3 days. my friends who i went on this trip with seemed to like gambling a lot. all of us except me made some money which was pretty awesome. i realized that i really wasnt a gambler. danny was losing at the beginning but after all my chips were gone, he started winning a lot. the dealers kept asking us for our IDs all the time since we all look young. its very strict danny is not even 21 yet!!

edit (danny):
For those of you who aren't from America, you have to be at least 21 in order to gamble. It was funny because EVERYONE asked for my ID. I didn't realize that I looked that young... it's a good thing that I won money! haha. The only game we played was roulette, and to my surprise it was quite fun!

I'm so glad that Yukari was able to have so much fun in Vegas. The hotel room at the Bellagio was just amazing... I feel as if there is no other hotel that can match it. A regal presence emanates immediately from the first time you enter the hotel. Even the drapes had control buttons. And the bathroom was the size of Yukari's room haha... maybe even bigger haha just kidding.

I'm so sad that Yukari has to leave. We've been through this many times before, saying goodbye and not being able to see each other for a long time. Hopefully this time won't feel too long..

finally in California!!
karla, danny, me arrived here in cali. in this morning.
the weather is soo awesome! palm trees, clear sky... everything is completely different from chicago. i guess its a little warmer than hiroshima.
we went to Venice beach just to walk around in the evening. i felt like it was a dream... reminded me of summer in vancouver.
we were all tired from the trip today so we decided to come back home and take it easy.
ill put some nice pictures later!!
