A watered down Beverly Hills!

View World Trip on blytonrtw's travel map.
Santa Barbara was a real delight. The hostel was in a good location. We met some nice people and Mark went surfing for the first time on Leadbetter beach. Whoa! radical dude. I was catching some tubes riding those breaks man, awesome! Sorry, drifted off there, more like getting the seaweed out of my mouth from wiping out so much!! The weather was great until the last day. We had a nice Mexican meal, and the second night disgusting pasta pots that were cheap for a reason.
The city is really pretty, in a Spanish Style. There are people with lots of money there too. We saw a row of cars drive past; two Aston Martins, two Ferarris and a Lamborghini amongst others.
We headed out one night for a few drinks with an Australian guy called Patrick. We ended up in a Karaoke bar. Mark was straight in there and got up to sing. I have evidence of this performance, which I am threatening to post on here!
On our last day we headed around town to see some of the old builings, such as the 18th century mission (you've got to do some culture!).
We then set off for San Diego and hopefully some better surf dude.
