Recap of LA trip.

We are home and I'm fighting a head cold.  It crept up on me on Thurs/Friday, but it was the worst on the flight home and today, I'm just trying to rest and sleep but really, I think I'm just making my jet lag worse.  Jeremy is at Dulles now picking Vince up from his China trip. 

Quick photo recap of the vacation.  Jeremy took most of the photos and I'm trying a new workflow for photos since my flickr uploader seems to not be working from my iPhone.  So here goes:

Lunch in the Burbank hills at a place called Castaway with Eva and Nancy.   Talked a lot about biking and drug/medical device development.  Had half a mimosa.

Castaway has great views,  Edda's not impressed.

Then Jeremy went to Minnesota for a few days - those days are documented in the previous blog posts.

On Wed, he came back.  We went to Tree People where Julia and Katherine began their friendship:

Edda walked a good bit on the trails:

Wed night we had a dinner party of 10 (?) no photographic evidence, oh well.

Thursday I took public transit (Expo line) to downtown LA to meet up with Ruth for a swim at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

The swim was in a pool on the 5th floor.  I'm always astounded by pools high up in the air.  We had lunch at the club, this was the only photo I snapped.

While I was swimming, Katherine, Jeremy and Edda went to visit Barbara and her in-home dog sitting business.  Seems like a lot of fun.

I came home and napped with Edda, Jeremy and Katherine went to visit Miwako.

Fun old photos of the families:

This was the first time Jeremy traveled with his bike.  It was an adventure in packing, paying luggage fees, breaking down and rebuilding the bike.  It didn't get damaged in transit, it got damaged at Julia's house where he left it outside when he went to Minneapolis and it fell over and got a dent in one of the carbon fiber shafts.  He rode up Mount Wilson on Friday while Edda and I found Europane, our wedding pastry provider and enjoyed blueberry brioche and a cheese danish.

From the Mount Wilson triumph, we met up with Aunt Liz at Ding Tai Fung.  Turns out there are two locations within a mile of each other and we managed to confuse the two.  Delicious soup dumplings and lovely to catch up.

Feviu came over for dinner on Thursday night:
