Hollywood: District & Hills

Los Ángeles was my first stop in my trip to the United States. My first day in the country took me by surprise. The first one was the size of the blocks in Los Angeles. What it seemed a little european block was actually twice or 3 times larger than what it looked like in Google Maps. The other surprise, though I already knew it before going there, was that the city is made exclusively for the car. I remember this day when I was walking in Hollywood Hills and the sidewalk suddenly disappeared. The only options were to go back half a mile or go half a mile to the next block. They even got buttons in the traffic lights, so the people can cross the street, though some of them takes a long time for the lights to change.

The gorgeous Los Angeles is actually a compilation of towns who were once united in one city to share the water and electricity system. You can see that on its neighborhoods. They’re quite different from each other. Hollywood is one of those districts. It is known for its movie and TV studios, specially the Majors like Warner Bros. and Paramount. It also has the famous Hollywood Boulevard with the Hollywood stars in the sidewalks and some attractions like the Dolby Theatre (where the Oscars takes place every year) and the Chinese Theatre. And it is here where I discovered one of the main keys of the american culture and its influence in the world: the Show. They’re the kings of entertainment. They know what, how, when, and where to tell it. “Fake it till you make it” and the “Act As If..” principles pretty much describe it better. They know how to sell. They almost perfectly manage the capitalist system. They learned it from the beginning thanks to their brittish ancestors and they successfully improved it after becoming an entire separate and new nation.
.
So after realizing of all this, the best way to have some rest was to go to the Hollywood Hills, a perfect place to watch the afternoon and the skyline of the great and legendary LA, the city of dreams. However, I was only looking at the mask. That was part of the show, I knew it.
