After an uneventful 12-hour flight, I landed in Los Angeles. It was slooooow getting through customs, but I finally made it out & met my brother on the other side. We promptly headed over to Real Food Daily for some proper vegan food. California is heaven for vegetarians.
After dinner we went back to the house, where I was greeted by the family dog, Nikko.
Even though I'm on China time, I had been traveling for a full day, so I had no problem falling asleep. I guess the jet lag will catch up with me later.
