I like it…

…when countdowns are coming to an end.

Don’t get me wrong. I like countdowns and the anticipation of a big event is definitely almost as exciting as the event itself, but let’s face it: It just builds up the excitement and the best part comes when the waiting is over.

My parents will be here in 48 hours. Wow! :)

The last couple of days, J and I kept talking about their visit, what we want to do with them here in Los Angeles and where we want to take them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Westwood is called the “New York” of the west coast, or so I heard, and there’s a great selection of shops and restaurants in the area. You can find every culinary treat your heart desires. I think we picked out more restaurants than there are days of their visit, but that just adds to the fun of deciding where to go, doesn’t it?

Since I haven’t started working yet, I’ll be able to travel with them quite a bit and I am very much looking forward to that quality time with my parents and my cousin. On Sunday, we’ll leave for the Grand Canyon. My cousin is going to be so impressed :) It is his first time in the US and I am sure he’ll be quite overwhelmed by the size of this country.

Even though I might not have much time for updating, I’ll try to write here as often as I can to let you know how their stay is going – but I am sure you’ll understand and be patient :)
