Subject: LA Get Together #2
The Los Angeles-area Traveziners had such an enjoyable time at our get together last fall at the Getty Center (see the picture just posted at that we decided to hold an encore at the LA County Museum of Art this past Friday evening. Attending were Amelia and her husband Ken, Art, Mark and special guest Hugues (Amelia's friend who was born in France but now lives in LA). We convened at Pentimento, the main LACMA restaurant. The weather was nice enough to eat on the outdoor patio where we swapped travel stories as the Friday jazz concert in the courtyard provided background music. By the way, is it still winter in other parts of the Northern Hemisphere? The food and drink were ok (Hugues gave especially high marks to his glass of gewurztraminer), but the conversation and camaraderie were the highlights. We found that we all have a common affinity for Europe, for the Western US and its national parks and in doing outdoor things like hiking and biking.

Sandy, we're sorry that you were under the weather and not able to join us - we missed you! We hope to see you and any other Travelziners at our next get together sometime in the spring.
