Farmer's Market LA
Got up this morning and went to the Farmer's Market on the corner of Third Street and Fairfax in Los Angeles. What a colorful sight to see. There were countless stands which served foods from around the world: Greek, Italian, French, Korean and on and on. Many also featured open kitchens whereby customers could watch the food being cut and prepared. Everything was so enticing but we eventually settled on DuPar's Restaurant which is famous for their breakfast pancakes since 1938. We wanted to take in a little history and share in the nostalgia of this American tradition.
After that we went down to check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Grauman's Chinese Theater. The street was bustling and there were tons of peple dressed up as famous film stars and characters performing on the street. I stopped and chatted with Darth Vader for a moment and eventually had my photo taken with him.
