I felt so street smart to get around Los Angeles spontaneously with no advance planning using public transit. This includes a ride down the brand new just opened Metro Expo line to Santa Monica downtown. The whole trip from the fabulous Getty Center to Santa Monica, changing from bus once, took a little more than an hour. The same trip in the morning by Uber was less than 30 minutes. Not bad I guess. I also enjoyed a great talk with a visiting PhD candidate in art history on the bus. A nice trip overall.
