These pictures aren't that great because I took them with my iPhone and the lighting wasn't much, but I didn't want to look like I don't do business class every time I fly.
We got our coffee before we boarded but Greta had a Mimosa on the plane before take-off.
For lunch we went to The Ivy. Laura said it was THE place to go in LA. I had looked it up online and it said the paparazzi are always around to spot celebs. Our experience was very different than a lot of the reviews I read. We went around noon and got in right away. The staff was courteous and helpful and the food was delicious, albeit twice as much as it would cost somewhere else. I had the roasted vegetable salad which is one of their signature items. I was glad I asked for the dressing on the side, because it was better without it. The flavor of the sauteed vegetables was delicious.
Greta got a Swedish massage and I got a Shiatsu Massage which is a "traditional Asian technique using moderate to strong finger pressure to work deep into the muscles and pressure points to relieve aches and stress. I thought this would be good for my aches in my neck and lower back, and it was. The girl who did it was tiny, 89 lbs, but so strong. She even walked on my back! Thank goodness she was only 89 lbs. She said not just anyone can do this, you have to be small and know what you are doing.
Then we went in the sauna and back to our room and fell asleep.
