After dinner with the aid of wine I suggested that we explore the different parts of downtown L.A. and so we drove through some of the good and bad parts of it, and got lost a little bit in a deserted looking warehouse neighborhood. Some parts of downtown is so luxurious while other parts of it feels empty and eerie, I in a weird way loved those huge creepy abandoned buildings, I thought they'd make great photographs one day, but I was too afraid to step out of the car late at night on a empty street. It was as if the city was on a full force to becoming a cutting edge modern city but the momentum all of a sudden stopped, 30 years ago. In this backdrop we told each other scary-hilarious stories of our bus riding days as students, mine back when I lived in Beijing and he's was back when he was a college student. So much fun!
