Her and I have a kind of long (7 hour) layover in LAX, and decided to catch a cab to see some of Los Angeles and grab some dinner (late lunch on California time). We intended to go to Santa Monica, but let the very friendly cabbie (Daniel Solomon Klein) talk us into going to Venice Beach instead where we settled on a little Latin restaurant with a nice view of the pier and water.

What a lovely place! Unfortunately we can only spend a couple hours wandering an eating before we have to head back to the airport and catch out flight.

PS the palm trees here are much taller than at home.
