Exchange No. 3 was once again in the Los Angeles Area at Beverley Hills.  Our exchange family met us at the airport and we left on the plane they arrived on.  This is convenient for cars but not for the practicalities of settling in at this end.  It was also tricky identifying them at 'Arrivals' because we were expecting a family of two adults and two children but El decided to follow a few days later owing to business commitments - so it was only Amy and two children.  This meant that El was there to pick us up at the airport and show us over the house.

Another great advantage of the house was that it was close to Peter & Lori and they let us use their beach club again.  We were in Beverley Hills for three weeks and gave us more time to take a few trips.

Being such a universally well known place this exchange was pretty cool for the children (and us) so thanks to El & Amy for giving us the opportunity.
