So, Grant's sister Kelli came to visit us from Chicago and we did a lot of stuff that I had actually never done before but have been wanting to do. We went kayaking in Seal Beach, we went to Visitors Night at UC Irvine's obvervatory (where we saw Jupiter and 3 of it's moons through a telescope and it really looks like it has lines on it that all the pictures show, come to find out they are storms going on... pretty cool). One of the highlights was when we went up to LA to an Ethiopian restaurant called Rosalinds. It was 5 stars or 2 thumbs up or 4 diamonds or whatever. Amazing. The food was sooo good, combining spices like ginger, jalepeno, and garlic and infusing the meats and vegetarian dishes with the most wonderful flavors. I loved the chickpeas and lentils. Instead of utensils, you hold pieces of this thin bread between your fingers and you scoop it up. It was such a unique experience and cheap too. We were all full off of their combo that was 16 bucks! We all loved it and we are really anxious to go again soon, which we will be doing. It is right next to the Grove too, so we went and walked around there for a little bit. I always love it when visitors come because it gives us an excuse to PARTAY!
