Hammocks at Will Rogers State Park

Sometimes, your surroundings are so perfect that it’s hard to improve them! In LA we have beautiful trails fulled with beautiful people ornamented by amazing views. How do we make it better and promote joy?

The answer is simple: HAMMOCKS!!!

Imagine the scenario: you’re all tired after a long hike and you get to this place from where you can see both Downtown LA AND the ocean. You want to be able to enjoy it for a little and just admire the view, but there’s no where to rest. If only I had a hammock…

New intervention in LA

A couple of weeks ago I was hiking at Will Rogers State Park and I saw this series of trees. My first idea was: this would be an awesome place for hammocks!

Then the itching came and… why not? I got the hammocks already, so stay tuned in because this weekend I’ll post about my second intervention in Los Angeles!

 

Black Tie on the Beach – LA style

So, after taking my pants off and riding the subway, I decided it was time for a change.

The latest Improveverywhere mission was Black Tie on the Beach. The title is self explanatory, you just have to go to the beach, do stuff you do on the beach, except this time you will be wearing a Black Tie Outfit. No big deal.

It’s big in NY. Well, at least, it looks big on the videos. But now I live in LA, and made sure to check if there was a version going on here.

According to the Facebook event, 40 people were confirmed. We can make a party with 40, I thought. So I convinced my friend to go with me. Convince is maybe a strong term. I just said the words: ‘Black Tie’ and ‘Beach’ and the next thing I know, he was wearing a legit Scottish quilt and ready to go to Hermosa.

I recently read an article telling that usually only 25% of people confirmed on Facebook actually go to the events. I think they were being optimistic. At least in this case, the only two people dressed up in the entire Hermosa Beach was him and I. And man, we did search.

But I can’t say we didn’t have fun:

Wishing Tree at Little Tokyo

One thing that I loved about NYC and now, Los Angeles, is that they have a series of cities inside the major city. You’re walking around and suddenly you’re transported to a completely different reality and culture.

This weekend we had some cravings for noodles, so naturally, we ended up at Little Tokyo. While we were waiting for seats on the restaurant where I probably had one of the best Ramens of my life, I noticed this Tree and instantaneously liked it:
