My Roadtrip: An Aussie in America Day 3

Diary Entry
Saturday 26th October 1996
Spent the day at Universal Studios. I came for the rides and stayed for the rides! We had multiple goes on Jurassic Park, Back to the Future (the best one) ET, Backdraft.

Caught a shuttle bus from our motel to UStudios with a bus driver called George. He was a hoot with an excellent sense of humour. He kept cracking joke along the freeway (while I'm thinking - keep your eyes on the frickin' road), like this: "We are now going through East LA - with 50 000 gang members living here, when they start rioting and start shooting people I'd rather be somewhere else like on vacation in New York". He was so funny.

Drinks tonight in the bar, meeting other tour members..they are mostly Aussie (god help America), we all got along famously. They all drink like fish so I'm in good company. My writing is a bit scrappy because I'm quite drunk at the moment. And happy. It will be an excellent tour....

Glad you were in such good company with all the fish! It sounds like you took a dream vacation.
