All of the Lights The view from Seventh Street in the Westlake area of Los Angeles, looking west toward the Bullocks Wilshire building. The Hollywood Hills are in the background.
Think Sydney commuting is a pain? Spare a thought for the folks in LA. Superhighways are jam-packed, cars crawl along in the worst rush hour of your life even though it's only 2 pm, and yet no one rides the scary subway. Last summer, it took me two solid hours to travel 28 miles - and that was on the highway, following a route Google said should take maybe 35 minutes.
