Rabbit spent an enjoyable day at the Getty Center, a unique destination that incorporates modern design, beautiful gardens, open spaces, and spectacular views of Los Angeles.
He admired a vast collection of European and American art, including ‘Portrait of Jeanne Kéfer’ by Fernand Khnopff, ‘Modern Rome – Campo Vaccino’ landscape by Joseph Mallord William Turner, ‘Jeanne (Spring)’ by Édouard Manet and Van Gogh’s ‘Irises’.
Along with the art he was impressed by an inspiring architecture of the museum and a beautiful nature of its surroundings. Little Rabbit marveled at the views and left happy and mentally invigorated.
Leo’s Rabbit embarked on a little hike to the famous Hollywood sign. The sign itself doesn’t appear to be an amazing landmark, well... it is just a nine-letter word (quite a big word however, especially for a little Rabbit - 45-foot-tall and 350 feet long!), but it is certainly one of the most evocative symbols – a universal metaphor for ambition, success, glamour and dream we call Hollywood, a place where magic is possible, where dreams can come true.
The sign itself cannot be reached ‘on paws’, but Mt Hollywood Hiking Trail from Griffith Park offers amazingly close encounters with the sign. Rabbit enjoyed his hike and was rewarded with spectacular views of the hills and mountains surrounding Los Angeles, a city with its characteristic downtown skyscrapers, an ocean and a beautiful Griffith Park itself. Rabbit felt as if he was on the top of the world:-)
Leo's Rabbit 'lives' in my handbag and he travels with us everywhere we go. He has pictures taken at various locations, tourist attractions and places we visit. As a part of this blog we will describe Leo's Rabbit Travels to share our personal experiences from these visits. Hopefully couple of people (apart from us :-) ) will find it interesting and may even feel encouraged to visit one of Rabbit's destinations.
