I'm back! I've finally finished my loop of the US and am back to my starting point! This second time coming to LA still had some tasks that I needed to accomplish. I went to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for NASA in Pasadena which was amazing fun. They showed us the different robots and satellites that would be going up to space in the next few years. We also got to see a real life replica of the Mars Rover which was kinda really cool. We also got to see the control room for all their satellites. This was the room that everyone watched when the mars rover was landing! It was so cool. Maybe one day I'll get to work for JPL.

While in town I also decided to check out some food places I had not gone to yet. One of the first places I went to was Birds Rotisserie Chicken Cafe with my good friend Chris. The food was actually really good. Much better than I had expected. I also went to Tommy Taco and had a taco. It wasn't the best that I had ever had, but it was good. I also decided that I needed to take my brother out to a proper ramen bar as apparently he had never been to one. We ended up going to Takara Ramen bar. The food there was super nommy and I think I now have my younger brother hooked on real ramen.
