So Universal Studios was an awesome experience. I'd booked the VIP tour, and it didn't disappoint! we did the tour of the stages- sound stages indoor and actual sets. There is a picture of Mick....that was really only taken to show him the large ...ummm........lungs of the woman sitting to his right!!! (you will need to zoom in....... but i was truly impressed at the whole gravity thing!)
We visited the set of a new series called HeartBreaker- Melissa George is the main star! we also saw plenty of actual sets off many movies, and Mick said this was his best day so far (amazing how I booked it for Jacks pleasure).We then did the rides, lunch etc and went straight through-not having to stand in line was definitely worth the extra money! It really was incredible to see how they actually make the shows- and the special effects. We were trashed again when we left but soldiered on and had dinner at IHOP. Sounds great right? yes, well on Judy's recommendation we ate at International House of Pancakes! the servings were disgusting......but we soldiered on :)
We all went to bed early...well i passed out i think! i then woke at 1am.....and decided I'd go and photograph the hotel lobby and exterior. It has the most amazing painted ceilings......dating from 1920 and is truly magnificent.
Well, we are here at the airport waiting to head to Vancouver!
