Los Angeles

I just returned from a trip to Los Angeles to see my brother Charles, visit museums, see friends, etc. We also drove down to San Diego for a two day visit for more museums, gardens and to see old friend Joanna Seetoo. One highlight of LA was our expedition to Compton to see the Abbey Memorial Park, a historic cemetery composed of several 1920s Moorish style mausoleum buildings. The pictures pretty much give you an idea of the amazing atmosphere (sorry, the photo of the incredible columbarium is a bit blurry).
