A taste of hollywood

You have not experienced Los Angeles until you have had a taste of Hollywood.  We had our first taste of it over the last couple of weeks for the first time after our return to LA.

First, was a performance of Iris produced by Cirque Du Soleil at the absolutely awesome Kodak theater in Hollywood.  The company spent $40,000,000 just to redo the stage for this performance.  The show had the usual combination of amazing visuals, great characters and music created by 100 orchestral musicians.  It was a breath-taking show produced in true Hollywood style.  It was nice to be back in Hollywood and the kids got a real kick out of seeing the stars of their favorite celebrities.  The Mann Chinese is as magnificent as ever.

A few days later, we went to see Steven Spielberg's first animated movie - The Adventures of Tintin.  The motion capture animation in 3D was totally realistic and the characters really come alive.  This was quite a treat for Mona and me who grew up reading Tintin comics but Aanish and Ayaana loved it too.
