Beverley Hills - Adam dreams about having a Bugatti Veyron

Beverley Hills - Adam dreams about having a Bugatti Veyron

Arriving in the States was a bit of a culture shock after South America - so many (big) cars, billboards, shops, fat people, fast food outlets, and no fruit or veg in sight.

So why not ratchet up the culture shock stakes and drive out to Beverley Hills? Wow! Gated roads hiding rich celebrity pads, palm tree lined avenues of designer shops, expensive cars and even more expensive looking women! We walked down Rodeo Drive and gawped at the richness of it all. 

By contrast, Hollywood was like a tatty version of Blackpool - the only thing I really liked was a place where stars had left their hand and footprints in concrete. Imprints of Helen Mirran's kitten heels and John Wayne's cowboy boots stepped out alongside Whoopi Goldberg's dreadlocks and Trigger the horse's horseshoes. Check out the size of Johnny Depp's feet in my photo!
