Before Asia, my 20 Years in Los Angeles !
1997 where I decided it was enough time spend in Europe and I was still young and full of energy before I was heading to California.
I did not arrive in LA first, I made friends before that in Palm Springs. So with my basic English skills and $100 Dollars in my pocket it was a clear choice to start in Palm Springs first.
Palm Springs was amazing for the first 3 years, it was friendly, clean and safe ! My father spend his winter months there to escape the cold weather in Europe, he was amazing sculptor and even the market in Palm Springs was not there for Stone Sculptures (www.Stone-Sculptures.com) he did few pieces in Marble and Alabaster.
When I arrived I was lucky that my Polish friends offered me a room for rent. Not only I had a nice room but also a 2nd family, lot of things to learn from them. In Europe at that time we did not know much about the internet few rich friends had it but it was not a thing that you would have access too. My friend and member of houshould Matt showed me his access to the net, it was unlimited provided by AOL. Dial up speeds but still the world opened up for me....
A quick update on current situation in Los Angeles, Corona and Riots in 06/15/2020 We just went the last 2 months on a total lock down and limit of contact to other people. Really difficult times but I mange it somehow with everyday exercise at the beach and computer work at night.. Following that we had some looting and fire set in our city by protesters and criminal people who choose that difficult times to steal :~( I am considering to spend less time in LA, the city is becoming dangerous because some cities and the state fails to enforce some laws.. Feels a bit like war, every night people illegally set of fireworks. To much work for cities to enforce it !
Florida with the affordable real estate could be one option, Hawaii bit expensive but also filters out majority of bad people.... Need to change something
