A Surprise Show and a Win for Walking

Hello from luscious Los Angeles!

On my second night here, I'd planned to attend a friend's book signing in Pasadena, which is 28 miles (45 km) away on the freeway from the Westwood neighborhood adjacent to the University of California, Los Angeles - UCLA, where I'm teaching a Winter Term course on International Business Law at UCLA Extension to a bright and dynamic group of international college students.

I'm also in town to promote exquisite craft chocolate by my local client Letterpress Chocolate to hotels, retailers, and the public through my Chocolate Uplift business, and to thaw out from another Chicago winter.

A mutual friend who kindly said she'd drive us to the book event messaged me that it would take 2 hours in traffic to get there, and another hour to get back, using her West Hollywood location as a starting point. I'd been looking forward to celebrating our friend's book success and picking up a couple of signed copies for myself and as gifts.
