The flight was long and uneventful.
The first hurdle, on arrival, was to collect the car, and to drive to the Airbnb place where we are spending the first two nights.
We decided to select the first driver at random using an android app. Chris drew the short straw.
Chris did a very good job for someone who hasn't driven in 7 years: we got to our destination in one piece, only noticeably annoyed one other car, and I only slightly feared for my life. He certainly did better than either Ruari or I thought we could do ourselves.
After settling into the Airbnb, we took the bus into Santa Monica for dinner and beers.
