The other day for some reason I remembered the beat-up apartment I lived in when I lived in LA. At first I couldn’t even remember the city, but after googling ‘towns near Venice, CA’ I remembered it was Mar Vista. (And then I felt really old.)
Then I remembered it was right near the Mar Vista Bowl, so I googled that, switched to Street View, and drove over to my old place. Amazing! 10 years ago I would have just been left with a nagging question about where this place was.
Wow, the place is really fancy looking now. Flowers, a metal gate, new shingles… It looks nothing like when I lived there. The window in the front was mine, and right under that was where this crazy woman would rev her Camaro from 6-6:30 every morning. It was awesome.
