Out and About in LA: Day 3

Kind of a low-key day for me out in the city of angels. Decided to take a tour of one of their museums. It’s not the Louvre or Metropolitan Museum, but the Getty Institute is a very cool place. I especially like the layout where you have to walk outside to get to each building. It is a little small for my taste but there’s still some goodies.

Dinner   

Heard nothing but amazing things about Tito’s Tacos. The hype was worth it cause this was the best Mexican food I’ve ever had. Meat in the burrito was perfectly cooked. And the salsa & gaucamole? Out of this world. Dangerous game to eat out but it is good to know I have great, and cheap, food if I need it.
