****THERE HAS BEEN A WARNING ISSUED BY THE CALIFORNIA STATE GOVERNMENT, AS WELL AS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ABOUT POSSIBLE TERRORIST ATTACKS ON SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA UNTIL NOVEMBER 10****
Certain bridges have been designated as possible terrorist attacks -- San Francisco, San Diego, and LA. Please be very careful if you are travelling to LA in the next 10 days.
This is a dangerous city. please be aware of your surroundings. If you rent a car take a detailed map of where you are going. Frankly it is my suggestion you spend the money and take a taxi when you have to find something.
I think is worth to mention that at night when visiting the Mann's Chinese Theatre, do not spend more than 20 minutes. You will notice right away that the place is not good. Be very careful with your belongings. If there are no gangs, you are lucky. I was advised not to visit the Chinese theatre at night, I should've listened.
At daylight it's OK.
