If there is one thing to do here, its eat!!! You would gain 15 pounds in a week coming here. #seriousface Like there are sooooooo many places to eat. Of course they have all the chain restaurants: California Pizza Kitchen, Chillis, Magianos, KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut and anywhere else you can name. But whats better than that is they have twice as many places that you have never even heard of that are even better. The same goes for clothing. They have exclusive stuff out here that if I brougth back to the states, I could start a business. I am actually considering that. LOL. There is this one place that does custom jeans (and their stuff is FLY). They take your measurements and you pick out a design that you like and they make it for like $100-200 for most types. They even had leather pants that I was considering just cuz that cost about $400. Thats hella cheap if you saw them. And keep in mind, this is in the “hollywood” part of town so please believe I can get the exact same thing somewhere else for half the price. Yea, its like that.
Unfortunately, my stomach was not strong enough for something I ate. Having only been here 5 days, I had a violent episode with food poisoning. I vomitted and had diarrhea all night long. I stopped counting after 7 or 8 trips to the bathroom. This by far was the the worst feeling in my life. I thought I was going to die. I was even taken to the ER and now they have me on antibiotics. Some way to get acquatined, huh?
Not to worry, I am doing better now. I guess I will just have to pace myself with trying the local fare until I adjust to this place. So the famous Balut egg will have to wait a few months.
