Santa Barbara and Universal City - Day 6

We left Pismo Beach at about 11 am and started moving toward our final destination Los Angeles. Since we skipped breakfast we decided to stop for quick bite at Santa Maria. I don’t know what it is, but food excites me (in a good way of course), so we went in an all you can it buffet. It was good and we sure enjoyed both the main course of breakfast and of course ice cream for desert covered with chocolate chips and crushed nuts.

Then we have stopped at Starbucks a few miles away, and did “number twerve” (if you don’t know the joke please use the link joke (sorry don’t have it now but promise to post it later), if you have no time to watch the joke is has to do with the fact that this was a drive through Starbucks. Satisfied with out version of the joke we then got back on the road to see the beauty of the Pacific Coast and to visit Santa Barbara on the way.

Santa Barbara turned out to be a beautiful town, we only had time to explore the State street with its shops, cathedral and Museum of Art. And guess what the bus that runs up and down this busy street cost only 25 cents, that is why it is filled with tourists and those who just begged for the money. But it is beautiful and we appreciated the little streets and shops that we saw. I am hoping you would be able to appreciate by looking at the pictures that we did.

Of course those of you who know that in the 80th and 90th everyone was watching a soap opera “Santa Barbara” in Moscow, for sure and probably other parts of Russian Federation. It was an experience, I haven’t missed an episode of “Santa Barbara” Somewhere from 1990 through 1994, then I came to New York and realized that the show lasted 20 years, so I parted my ways with it. But being in Santa Barbara, felt like being in a place where you know pretty much everyone, and even though we haven’t really run into Cruz, Iden or Mayson, we also still don’t know if Cici is in a coma. But it was great and we loved it.

Then we were on the way to our hotel in Universal City, which is 7 minutes walking from the Universal Studio and since everything has been ordered through AMEX, we are of course are treated to complimentary breakfast all three days, wine and cheese platter to fulfill our Romance package, and are staying at Sheraton with a very impressive lobby. I am sitting in the lobby at this moment enjoying my complimentary Mimosa and Gor just finished his Mohito waiting to be checked in. I will finish the blog with links to the joke and links to pictures tonight.

And I am back, not that you would notice the break that I took from writing, but we had dinner at Universal Studio Street Mall and it seems great. We are going to spend a whole day there, since we booked ourselves some VIP trip.

and here are the pictures for you, and wine and cheese in the room for me. :)
