Los Angeles CA (2) – A 45-Minute Tour

I wouldn’t have a clue about Los Angeles if I hadn’t taken this 45 minute impromptu private helicopter tour.  Starting at Whiteman Airport in San Fernando, we visited these places in the following order Malibu, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Downtown and back to the Airport.  In a somewhat disturbing revelation, the different classes of living is so evident in a blatant manner.  Unless I missed it, the homes were either a mansion with a swimming pool and tennis court or an apartment building.
