What do you do when the future King of England marries a beautiful commoner in the most televised wedding in over 20 years and then takes a tour of North America including Los Angeles, CA?

4 days, 3 tanks of gas, 1 delightfully unique hotel courtyard complete with library, more encounters with hobos than is ever necessary and we have returned, slightly sunburned, perhaps closer friends and one Prince William (and Kate's shoulder) sighting richer.
Thursday: Drove to L.A.
Walked down Hollywood Blvd., ate dinner at the Disney Restaurant and got cupcakes at Crumbs. Saw Jennifer Aniston's freshly made hand prints for Mann's Chinese Theater.
Saw random stuff like this:
Friday: Randy's Donuts

There was a brief appearance by:
And then finally:
Despite sunburns and hobos the trip was perfect! We came to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and we succeeded. Something not many people can say they've done.
