Apparently Janis Joplin overdosed in this hotel - located around the corner from our accommodation, Hollywood, California.

We had two tours today - a Warner Bros VIP Studio tour in the morning and a Beverley Hills Celebrity homes tour pm hours. The company that we chose was Star Lines. They are the most used tour company in Los Angeles and have the monopoly on all things Hollywood. In view of this we had to wait to receive tickets and the later tour in Beverley Hills was rushed and was hard to hear the driver/guide telling all the important aspects of the tour. Nevertheless it was a tiring day and after returning to our apartment rested and had dinner there. Tomorrow we go to Santa Monica for our segway ride and with an afternoon free will go the the Getty Museum nearby. cheers.
