Dinner in Istanbul, Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท

Dinner on night #1 was pretty good, looking forward to some good eating all week !!!!

Finally , Istanbul we have arrived !!!!! Unfortunately all we had time to do was shower and go to a nice steakhouse for dinner . The food was pretty good and the view was amazing . It over looked the city and gave us a small glimpse of what we can expect from Istanbul. Canโ€™t wait to explore more tomorrow โœŒ๐ŸพโœŒ๐ŸพโœŒ๐ŸพโœŒ๐Ÿพ

Weekend trip to Los Angeles, California !!!!! โ˜€๏ธ ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ”

The Hollywood Sign is an American landmark and cultural icon overlooking Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.

Whatโ€™s up everybody โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿพ !!!! I hope everybody is doing well and remaining safe out there as we continue to navigate through this awful pandemic. Hopefully conditions continue to improve and we can get back to some sort of normalcy . With that being said , LOS ANGELES , CALIFORNIA was next up on my travel list ๐Ÿ“ and it did not disappoint. This was my second time visiting the โ€œCity of Angelsโ€ but this time I really had the opportunity to enjoy myself.

Attractions and Things to do

There are so many things to do in Los Angeles that you need more than a week to probably get around to them all . You have DisneyLand which is probably one of the more popular affections but I skipped that one since Iโ€™m going to Disney World next month. If youโ€™re a sports guy like myself, you can catch a Dodgers or an Angels baseball game . LA is also home for the Lakers and the Clippers . Both teams play at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles . I spent a lot of time checking out the art through the city , mainly murals. I was interested to see the tributes to our fallen brother Kobe Bryant and Nipsey Hussle . Both of these gentlemen played such a big part in the culture of this fine city that I had to pay my respects . Kobe Bryant will go down as one of the NBAโ€™s greatest players of all time and one of its brightest stars . I though that it was ironic that I was there to admire paintings of him during the same weekend that he was enshrined into the basketball Hall of Fame !!! Long Live Mamba ๐Ÿ

R.I.P. Kobe and GiGi

Nipsey Hussle ๐Ÿ The Marathon Continues

For those of you who may not know who Nipsey was , he was the true definition of a hustler. Personally , what I admired most about him was his will and desire to invest in the same streets that he grew up in . Ermias Asghedom was born in raised in Los Angeles where he sold incense on the street corner to earn some money. His work ethic is what would propel him to be a Grammy award winning rap artist and a beloved figure in the community.

This mural is off of slauson and Crenshaw next to where Nipsey she opened a clothing store !

Well thatโ€™s all for now guys …. I will leave more pictures below of some of the places we visited in L.A. As always live , love , laugh and TRAVEL โœŒ๐Ÿฝ๐ŸโœŠ๐Ÿพ
