Brief trip to LA for Volks store closing on March 15-16

Last week we've been to Japan (more about it later) and on the way back from there made a stop in Los Angeles.

The occasion for the stop was less than happy. Volks USA ceased operations of its Los Angeles store and it was the last weekend the store was open. As a customer appreciation event they also held a tea party on Sunday that we also attended.

Due to the closure there was also a sale for the entire stock of items that attracted quite a crowd.

AX'11 Day 4

So the last day of Anime Expo and the last day of our stay in LA has begun.

We started the day in a usual way, by having a breakfast ;)

Breakfast Ksusha had. I had radically different one that was very good, but no pictures for you ;)


AX'11 Day 3

Day 3 started earlier than the day before, the plan was to visit Exhibition hall at the opening time to perhaps snatch some freebies and then to attend Culture Japan x Fakku meetup at 11am.

AX'11 Day 2

Second day of Anime Expo started late for us. We woke up pretty late at about noon due to getting to bed pretty late too.

And of course the first thing we did was to go and eat something at a nearby restaurant (Wolfgang Puck in this case).

Visit to Anime Expo 2011, day 1

We just returned from out trip to Los Angeles for Anime Expo 2011 that was held over a Independence day weekend (July 1-4, 2011).

This post here is about the travel day and the first day of the Anime Expo itself.

We departed on June 30th which was it's own separate story. Delta contacted us 1.5 hours before departure because our first flight was delayed and we were going to miss our connection. Prospect of missing out on the first day of the event did not appeal to us so we asked if anything could be done. To our surprise Delta representative proposed to rebook us on American Airline flight that would still arrive in time. This was very surprising since AA is not even a code-sharing partner of Delta, but anyway we are really grateful.
