Los Angeles Day 2

Posted on July 13, 2023

– Ilana Hanai  Many times in life, I, and I’m sure others, hide our true feelings from people that care about us and the world by putting up a front. Sometimes purposefully, but there are also times it subconsciously happens. Today we learned about the different types of hiding, both mentally and physically. We started Continue Reading »

Los Angeles Day 1

Posted on July 12, 2023

– Ella Fried We woke up in the bustling city of Vegas, walked through the “adult arcade” one last time, and boarded the bus to leave (some more begrudgingly than others).  We stopped for lunch at our official Etgar restaurant, Chipotle (joke courtesy of Billy), among other options, then got back on the bus. When Continue Reading »

Day 17 – Los Angeles

Posted on July 14, 2022

by Ethan Lenkin   When I first scanned our schedule for a day I wanted to chronicle, this day jumped out. The combination of city and programming was incredibly appealing, and it didn’t disappoint. After a nice late hotel departure of 9:00, we ventured through the grind known as LA traffic to our first meeting Continue Reading »

Day 16 – Los Angeles

Posted on July 13, 2022

by Zachary Gordon   Today started with quite a long bus ride from Sin City up to the City of Angels. Our first  significant stop was for lunch. Me and a group of my friends went and got Panera bread, where I got a salad and mac & cheese that was surprisingly good. When we Continue Reading »

Day 18 – Los Angeles

Posted on July 15, 2021

by Kaela Paulin      This morning we spent a lot of time driving through different parts of LA. We drove through South Central before heading to meet with our speakers, and watched the neighborhood move passed us. The barred windows and gated houses where unfamiliar to me and interesting to compare to Hollywood Boulevard. Continue Reading »

Day 17 – Los Angeles

Posted on July 14, 2021

by Sara Matter     Today was the first early wake up in a while, but we got on the bus ready to take on some double digit temperatures. We drove through the deserts of Nevada for about three hours, and then we stopped for lunch. To our surprise,  there was a plethora of options Continue Reading »

Day 18 – Los Angeles

Posted on July 18, 2019

by Ethan Leiberman   Our second day in Los Angeles was riveted with scenes of economic inequality. It is rare that polarized extremes are within such close ranges to each other, and this provided an excellent learning experience. We were also given the chance to see a culture of blissful ignorance at Venice beach, and Continue Reading »

Day 17 – Los Angeles

Posted on July 17, 2019

by Ben Sher   Today, we set are sights west and headed from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. The ride was long, but the mountainous desert scenery kept it interesting. We also stopped for brunch at a 1950s themed diner and watched the movie “Crash” on the bus, which takes place in LA. Once we Continue Reading »

Day Eighteen – L.A.

Posted on July 12, 2018

by Liora Newman We started our day visiting South Central, a community notorious for police brutality and negative relations between residents and the police. We talked about the Watts and Rodney King riots that occurred there, both of which were cases of police brutality against black residents. We learned about the Los Angeles Police Department’s Continue Reading »

Day Seventeen – L.A.

Posted on July 11, 2018

by Daniella Cooper Yesterday, like most days thus far, we started our day with a 4 hour bus ride. Mid-ride, we took a stop at Peggy Sue’s diner to have a delicious brunch complemented by the cute atmosphere of an almost stereotypical 50’s diner. After arriving in L.A., we stopped at Homeboy Industries to learn Continue Reading »
