The last weekend was fun! Susi came to visit for 2,5 days, before she flew back to Germany. We picked her up Friday morning and she and I decided to go to Santa Monica to check out 3rd Street Promenade and the beach. It was the 1st of December, and people, we were walking around at the beach barefoot, enjoying the nice and sunny weather ;) It was strange!
Susi treated me to a Vanilla Frapuccino, an evil drink!, afterwards… it was so yummy, and we sat at the Promenade and just enjoyed the time together :)
In the evening, J’s friend Chris came over from Pasadena and after some yummy Japanese food, we all went to the studio to hear J and Aaron perform a private concert for us. It was a great night and we all had a blast.
Saturday, Susi, J and I went to the Getty Center which is located in the Santa Monica Mountains, just a 5 minute drive from our apartment. It is a huge campus with a museum, library, research center and the Getty Foundation. The view from up there was simply gorgeous. You could see all of LA and the area where we live.

We had a great time up there and later on I took Susi shopping. In the evening, we cooked some dinner and hung out at the apartment, because we had to take Susi to the airport really early on Sunday morning.
The last few days were kind of busy. We ran some errands, went shopping, did the laundry [we go to a big laundromat instead of using the washer and dryer at our apartment building, because there is only one, I think, and we usually have at least 4 or 5 loads each time we get around to doing the laundry] and I worked quite a bit on the apartment. There are so many unpacked boxes that I have to sort through. It’s fun, but also time consuming. It will take me a few more days before I’ll be done with this and I haven’t decided yet, if I am going to take any pictures of our place before I haven’t bought some new accessories that we badly need. Be patient ;)
P.S. Happy Nikolaus! It’s not observed in the US and I missed finding Nikolaus chocolate in my boots this morning, but I hope you German people have been treated well with chocolates ;)
