we started @ hollywood farmers market, then made our way up to WHITLEY HEIGHTS, the first suburb of hollywood inspired by a italian hilltop village.
we then traipsed down highland ave to franklin ave, up to yamashiro, constructed in 1911 as a japanese temple. i showed ricardo the hidden "ghost steps" of yamashiro, no longer open to the public.
we finished our walking tour at my favorite tea room~ chado.
