The day when we would come back to Buenos Aires finally came and I was a little sad, I had a great journey so I didn't want to go home, but now that it spent almost five months and I'm writing the last words of this trip I can say that the memories and amazing moments that I lived in it I will not forget them!
And I remember that I wasn't sure of making this trip, that the trip ended being something AMAZING!! The effort that I did also worth it and I hope I could repeat a trip like this again soon, I think taht with my friend we're talking about Europe 2012! At least, that's what we hope, everything on the right time, and with effort everything can be made! So when you want something put all your energy on it because sometimes you can do it! And I know it!
Well, the things I will NEVER forget are the two shows of Mars, to have met all of them this time, also have met some great Echelon showing what is really being Echelon!, two very crazy people like LH and Coffee (and I thought that the Argentinians were crazy!), and I miss my carrot cake that I can find here, but they aren't the same!
Finally, and I say goodbye to this trip, I want to say thanks to my partner, who suffer me those long 17 days! She got me up every time I fell in lazyness and madness! She also helped me to communicate in the entire trip, because at that time I knew less English than I know now! and she had to manage all the problems, thanks Pao for sharing this journey with me, I know that if we hadn't gone together, hadn't been the same, I hope to share with you another trip at some point (if it's possible, Europe 2012! lol) and I hope you had fun with me as I did with you!
Thanks to all who read these days of my trip in the U.S., I also gonna write my trip to Milan in 2009, until it a new journey began and can tell you my experience here!
Llego el día en el que volveríamos a Buenos Aires y me encontraba un poco triste debo decir, había sido una viaje tan fantástico que no quería que acabara nunca, pero ahora que ya pasaron casi 5 meses y me encuentro escribiendo las ultimas palabras de este viaje, puedo decir que los recuerdos y momentos increíbles que viví en él no me lo voy a olvidar nunca mas!

The last day of our trip had reached, the next morning we have to go away to Buenos Aires. In the morning, we decided that we would return to Los Angeles, our San Diego tour was over and we had not much money to do many things and LH wasn't able to join us.
So, at noon we left to LA, we bought some tasty salads and went back to those beautiful train ride (hopefully here we had those trains!). The view was beautiful,the train was coastal, so we spent the entire trip looking at the sea, it was such a relaxing feeling seeing the waves that came and went, I must say this again: that was the best trip of all that I did in LA! I could relax for real!
I can't forget the great story we had with our "partner" in train. You can't get in the train with alcohol, but you can bought it inside, not bring it from the street, the thing is that are a few dolars of difference in the price between them. The thing is that our "partner" get in the train with a six pack and the guard had already taken him one, then he started drinking the others but hidden them... He filled the beer that he bought inside the train with the ones he had hidden! The funniest thing was seeing him doing it. And Paola was telling him every time the guard passed by, so he wasn't caught... That's something I would never forget.
When we arrived to Los Angeles went to the hostel to get our things and then we take a walk a bit before putting our bags for the journey that awaited us the next day.
Día 16 (San Diego- Los Angeles):Había llegado nuestro último día en US, mañana ya partiríamos nuevamente a Buenos Aires, en la mañana habíamos decidido que nos volveríamos más temprano a Los Angeles, nuestro tour por San Diego había terminado y tampoco contábamos con mucho dinero para hacer muchas cosas y a la vez LH no nos podría acompañar.
Así que al mediodía partimos hacia LA compramos unas ricas ensaladas y volvimos a viajar en esos hermosos trenes (ojala acá tuviéramos esos trenes!), la vista era preciosa nuestro tren era costero por lo que nos pasamos todo el viaje viendo el mar, era una sensación tan relajante ver el oleaje que venía y se iba, la verdad vuelvo a decirlo por que lo siento mucho que fue el mejor viaje de todo los que hice en LA, me pude relajar!.
No puedo olvidarme de la gran anécdota que tuvimos con nuestro compañero en de tren, en el mismo no se puede ingresar con alcohol, si comprarlo dentro, pero no traerlo de la calle, el negocio es que hay una diferencia de dólares entre uno y el otro. La cuestión es que él había entrado con 6 cervezas y el guardia ya le había sacado una, entonces empezó a tomarla a escondida llenando la que había comprado dentro del lugar, lo más gracioso era ver la situación cada vez que pasaba en guardia y como Paola le hacía de control avisándole si venia cuando llenaba la nueva lata, algo que no voy a olvidar.
Al llegar a Los Angeles fuimos al hostel a buscar nuestras cosas y después aprovechamos a pasear un poco antes de armar nuestro bolsos para el viaje que nos esperaba al día siguiente.
When we woke up, waited for LH to came to the hotel with the gorgeous news that we need to take us to another hotel, that night with Pao had searched a more economical one, clearly after a lot of shopping and things like that, we didn't had much money.
LH carried us to another hotel and we did everything fast to go to the zoo, because she told us that she couldn't stay all day with us and wanted to spend the most time all together.
When we arrived at the zoo I was thrilled with how big it was, we began to walk arounde and decide where to go because it's such a huge place! There were some animals I've never seen in my life and we even looked for similarities with MARS hahaha that was pretty funny!. After two hours LH had to go, so we say goodbye to her, but first we had to go for a churro, well, actually, LH wanted a churro, but those aren't like the churros here in Argentina, not even similar! And don't have dulce de leche!
We said goodbye and went with Pao to continue walking aroun and special search of some dwarf hippopotamus which I was obsessed with! We got a ride by cable car and also we took the bus that take you to tour the zoo, I think that with this you can imagine how big it was, after covering almost all went to eat something and that was the moment Paola ate hes first junk food of the trip! I got it!
After lunch I went like crazy when I realized that there were gorillas and had not seen them, I was like a girl telling to Paola that I wanted to see the gorillas, to which she replied that she wanted to see the dwarf hippopotamus! Time passed by and we were both happy because we could see both!
I must tell you that if you ever go to San Diego you must go through the zoo, I don't really like zoo because I don't like the animals are locked in there, but going to see animals that I didn't think would see in my life, like a baby koala, pandas, gorillas, etc ... Worth it!
After our tour in the zoo, we turn to the dowtown taking a bus and then premetro, a place that has such a beautiful architecture, everything is very Mexican style, it is clear that San Diego is very close to the border with Mexico. We walked a while, we took some pictures and ended up in a cafe where the coffee were the most delicious of the trip!
After we finished, went to the hotel and the trip was the hardest of the entire trip because we didn't found anything to go back, so we walked a long time, ending up in a downtown area and buy lunch at Subway, while trying to get some way to return the hotel.It end up getting very late, but we could took a taxi passing by witch could take us to the hotel, and luckly it gave me just enough time to take this picture! Something funny on the trip!

LH no llevo hasta el otro hotel y hicimos todo rápido para irnos al Zoológico ya que ella nos había informado que no podría quedarse todo el día y queríamos pasar el mayor tiempo todas juntas.
Al llegar al zoológico me quede maravillada con lo grande que era, empezamos a recorre y decidir por donde ir por que es un lugar muy enorme! Hay animales que nunca había visto en mi vida y hasta buscamos los parecidos con MARS jajaja eso fue muy gracioso!. Después de dos horas LH se tubo que despedir y nos quedamos con Pao no antes ir por un churro, mejor dicho LH quería un churro, no son como los de acá, ni parecidos y no tienen dulce de leche!
Nos despedirnos y fuimos con Pao a seguir recorriendo y a la búsqueda en especial de unos hipopótamos enanos con cuales estaba obsesionada! Nos subimos a dar un paseo por el teleférico y hasta nos tomamos el micro que te llevaba a recorre el zoológico, creo que con esto se entiende lo grande que era, después de recorrer casi todo fuimos a comer algo y ese fue el momento en el que Paola comió su primera comida chatarra del viaje! lo conseguí!!
Al terminar de comer me me puse como loca al darme cuenta que había gorilas y que no los habíamos visto, me puse como una nena diciéndole a Paola que quería ver lo gorilas, a lo que ella me respondió que quería ver los hipopótamo enanos! . Paso el tiempo y las dos quedamos contentas ya que pudimos ver las dos cosas!
No puedo dejar de decirles que si algún día van a San Diego no deje de pasar por ese Zoológico, a mi no me gustan mucho, ya que no me agrada que los animales estén así encerrados, pero van a poder ver animales que pensé que no vería en mi vida, como por ejemplo un koala bebe, pandas, gorilas, etc... Vale la pena!
Al terminar nuestra gira por el zoológico volvimos hacía el dowtown tomándonos un colectivo y después el premetro, lugar que es precioso en su arquitectura, todo es muy al estilo mexicano, cabe aclarar que San Diego queda muy pegado a la frontera con México, caminamos un rato, sacamos varias fotos y terminamos en una cafetería donde tome el café mas rico en el viaje!.
Terminamos y nos fuimos hacia el hotel y fue el viaje mas complicado de todo ya que no conseguíamos con que volver, caminamos por mucho tiempo hasta terminar en una zona céntricas y compramos comida en SubWay, a la vez de tratar de conseguir alguna forma para volver al hotel, termino haciéndose muy tarde hasta que conseguimos un taxi que pasaba y nos llevo hasta el hotel, pero me dio el tiempo justo para sacar esta foto! Algo muy gracioso en el viaje!

At noon we went to The Hive, we arrenged with Coffee to meet there, we went for the revenge because if you remember we had gone there before we went to Las Vegas but the place was closed.
This time we were lucky to find the place open, I do wish to say that this new The Hive, was not what it was before, since the beginning of your entry, can see the differenc: the walls are pink and white :( Also we had the surprise that we weren't received in a very nice way, I think sometimes you imagine things that not always happen o you only might see the things in a different way. Maybe the fact that Paola and I traveled all the way from Buenos Aires and Coffee from Germany, you might think you're going to be received in a nice way, like recognizing the fact you traveled almost 15.000 km to visit a place with a LOT of significant for you, but not, there were only two people working at that moment and their welcome wasn't exactly the best we had , and more than one person showed us, only with look at us, the lack of importance of the fact that we were there, but it doesn't care too much to us and we kept looking at the place that we wanted to know so bad! That was HUGE! Although that place wasn't the most wanted!
Important fact to know if they you ever go to The Hive!, Carry food with you, that can make the things go even better... People start to be more polite and kind... It seems that with the pizza we brought, the atmosphere get more calmed.
I also have to that I didn't care at all, because the one who ate her slice of pizza in those chair, where several interviews were held, was me! And I didn't even care!!!
I don't want to forget about the message that The Hive left on their twitter account when we were there :)
Then we went with the girls to take a Frappuccino at Starbucks, now I understand why people in that place always have a cup of coffee, they have a Starbucks a block and a half away! Life is so unfair!
The girls couldn't had best idea than go to a mall after there, what could we do? Is our addiction! But we behave well, I only buy my beautiful rhinestone glasses and a little more buy at Victoria Secret and ate a nice slice of pizza in Sbarro!
We said goodbye to Coffee and headed to the train station, where we would take a train to travel to San Diego, which we didn't know was that the trip to the station would be a freaking chaos, I forgot to tell you that we spent all day with a hand bag that left us SO tired!!! But that wasn't the problem, the thing was that NOBODY in the U.S. knows the names of the streets around the corner! So they sent us from one place to another, we took a bus and the subway to get to the train station, and luckily our tickets didn't have an specific time and we knew that if we lost this train we had another after that! But it was not necessary, we went over the place doing what we knew best: we came all the way running and racing to the train and we did it! We went in and found some beautiful seats that would be my favorites in all the transport we use on this trip!
It was a nice experience to share some of this journey with Coffee, although we couldn't communicate much because as you know I don't speak almost nothing of english, but it was amazing to spend some time with an Echelon from another country and incredibly, realize that we think very similar! I hope to see you again and promise to have a more fluent English!
Arriving in San Diego, was rare that nothing odd or rare happened to us, but when we arrived to the hotel, we found that the discount that was supossed to be made for that night, it wasn't going to be done. But we were so tired that we stayed there that night. The next day, a new one, where we're more rested, we would change the hotel.
