LA Immersion Days 7 & 8

Friday was the fun day for us LA Immersioners with a plethora of fun activities planned for us by our wonderful advisors, Blaise and Chris. We first started off the day with a drive to find the hiking trail to the Hollywood Sign. After a fun hour of finding the sign, we made it to the entrance and began the long and ardous trek to the top of the Hollywood Sign, which took us about an hour and a half. After our hike and a photo-op at the top of the sign, we made it to the bottom where we drove down to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles for Lunch. Afterwards, we went to Hollywood Boulevard for some sightseeing, and walking down the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Afterwards, we headed back to our living quarters in Duarte to have some spiritual reflection with Father Jim Heft who is a Marianist Priest. We had a very engaging conversation with him about Catholic Social Teaching, which we found to be very interesting.

Saturday, for me was a very bittersweet day because it was the day where all three universities bid each other adieu and headed home. We had breakfast as a group in El Segundo, before saying goodbye to the others from UD and STMU who had to head out to LAX for their flights. As for the Chaminade-Hawaii Delegation, we headed out to Santa Monica for a fun day of sightseeing. We visited the Santa Monica Pier and Boardwalk, walked up the 3rd Street Promenade, and got to eat at In-N-Out Burgers. Afterwards, we headed out to LAX for our flight back to Honolulu.

I'll be uploading one more reflective blog post on my experience in Los Angeles. I'll have that up in a few days.

Peace and Blessings,
