Monday, it was time to leave Sin City behind and drive off to Los Angeles. We had rented a nice blue Ford Focus, which was the smallest car at Dollar, but it was only $200 a week, so we were happy. We left Las Vegas at noon and after a 5-hour drive we could finally park the car in front of Budget Inn on Sunset Blvd.
A sign outside proclaimed that the premises had “armed patrol” and the entrance looked a bit worn, put mildly. Our room has a window, but it is facing the wall of another building, so there isn’t much of a view. Though we were pleasantly surprised by the room itself, which was nice and clean with a functioning a/c. There is also a fridge, so after resting for a while, we went for a walk down to Ralphs, to buy water, sodas and snacks. We have breakfast included in our stay, but it is standard cellophane motel breakfast, so I think we will need to do another round at Ralphs and buy some yogurt and granola.
