We went downtown this weekend, taking public transportation the whole way! Gasp! Per usual, we learned that public transportaiton in Los Angeles isn't really ideal. We waited for 20-30 minutes for a bus that metro.net said would come, and it never did. I have a feeling it was because three blocks of downtown were blocked off because of a film shoot. This annoyed me at first, until I noticed they were filming a rainy scene, and then I was riveted by the rain crane and all of the extras walking around carrying umbrellas. I couldn't stop looking.
