Some Pics of LA

Flying over the Grand Canyon:


This is the place where they don't cook the food:



This is a concept they have yet to do in Astoria, a Laundrymat/Cafe/Sandwich spot! The soup and sandwich I had were superb. What a nice way to spend time waiting for your clothes to dry!

Good Brazillian food/little Brazil motel....

It looks like florida.

I always thought of a cafe laundry mat, and wondered why no one did it. I concluded it was due to health code restrictions (no need to expound). In fact I was going to suggest it to a local laundromat to up sales. Maybe Calf. has different codes...or maybe the transferring of body 'stuff' does not bother the californians.

Actually, it's a laundrymat, and right next door is a cafe/food spot. But they are joint operations. It's really neat.

That raw food concept I don't get.
Do you know the address of the laundro. I want to see if I can find it online to show the local buisness. There has got to be something that prevents it here. Even in Manhatten there is nothing like that. Then again if it is seperate rooms--why not? Its such a great idea. Who does not hate waiting for their laundry. There should also be some lounge area for reading etc. Why doesn't Starbucks invade the laundromats. MAybe that will be their next venture, being they already are on every street corner.
I think it is a great business idea that has not yet been exploited.

I've heard of laundrymat/clubs existing I think in Germany (predictable), but the cafe idea is much more practical- something air conditioned maybe?

The Leaf place looks like a tearoom, but the raw stuff is only exciting to a certain distance....then I'd probably feel like a rabbit before the visit was over.

Yeah, where I was staying was pretty desolate.

Gata, it's funny you said you'd feel like a rabbit. Come to think about it, I DID feel like a rabbit!

If Danny was there he'd feel like a jack...
