This post marks the last day that Deb was here on US soil. Deb’s interest had previously been piqued by Runyon Canyon Park, so that’s where we went hiking the afternoon before she had to catch her flight back to Singapore. Like all hills in the Hollywood area, the peak offered such a scenic view of the Los Angeles cityscape. It was a beautiful finale to her last moments here. T^T
I was so tickled when I discovered this flyer posted on the message board near the entrance! Apparently it’s a real thing, Terminator Too.
We took a route less traveled, evident by how it was unpaved. I guess we bit off more than we could chew, because the climb was precariously steep… we later found out that we had veered off onto a ‘trail’ that wasn’t even a trail. Deb was so afraid of the incline that we backed down halfway after she refused to follow my lead because there wasn’t anything for her to grasp onto. Frankly, I was scared too despite resolutely trudging on ahead.
The climb down was worse than climbing up. I couldn’t stop laughing because it was so absurd.
I don’t remember what possessed me to wear a dress for this:
And then came our typical photos:
Here, have a video where I’m terrible at narrating, as Deb demonstrates a how-to. Plus some eagles. No, apparently they do not fly in pairs:
The road back down to civilisation was littered with tiny acts of rebellion. I love these colourful breaks in the monotony of laxly-enforced regulations.
And then we realised that Deb was in a spot of trouble because we didn’t book a shuttle to the airport until it was too late. Things worked out in the end though, and the night was spent saying goodbyes as she departed. :(
It feels so surreal thinking that that’ll be me in approximately two months; I’d been saying goodbye to Singaporean interns (Jesca, CY, Nad, Jan, KJ, Pete, Grace, Des, James, Deb & Jac) as they departed for home for the past two years that it feels weird to be on the other side. (*w*)
