Re: Oct. 31, 2018: Dia de los Muertos, Cozumel, Mexico

PortMoresby ·
Currently in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas. Today was full of action all around town but especially in the zocalo with students dressing up the square and themselves. Tomorrow I’m off to a couple of villages and we’ll see what a Zapatista Dia de los Muertos looks like.

Re: Yelp Offers Health Grades for LA Restaurants

Paul Heymont ·
This is a first for both Yelp and the County Health Department, so I guess we'll have to view it as a pilot project before any other areas get added. I'm wondering (and I'm sure Yelp is, too) what effect it will have on discussion, and on user choices.

Great piece! The Huntington is one of my favorite places in the LA area and also pretty close to another one of my favorite spots ther , the beautiful racetrack, Santa Anita. As far as smog goes in LA , it really has gotten a lot better since I was a kid but still can be a shock to people.

Did you catch Gainsborough's PINKY and BLUE BOY? Among my favorites at the Huntington. I haven't visited the Huntington in about 15 years but when we lived in the LA area we would try to stop by at least once every few years.

An interesting behind the scenes look, Lester. Thanks for sharing this. Do you know if this Academy building will be open to the public, or will it just be for members of the Academies and their invitees? As I recall, the current Academy building is mostly off limits except to Academy members.

Re: LA rail extension great for beachgoers

This will really help on time. As a kid, I took the bus from Santa Monica to Downtown LA a lot and it took forever but it was to be one of the most interesting rides anywhere. It goes through such diverse neighborhoods it almost doesn't seem real.

Re: JetBlue aims Buffalo-LA flight at Canadian flyers

DrFumblefinger ·
There's a fair bit of competition for Canadians at the Buffalo airport. My cousin lives near Niagara Falls and often uses Buffalo as her preferred departure airport. Given her close proximity, it makes a lot more sense than driving to Toronto, which is about as popular with Canadians as JFK and LAX are with Americans.

How to go from Los Angeles airport to the city

Tiffy ·
Up to 7 airports are located in Los Angeles. Here's a tip: If you plan to take an internal flight, leaving or going to Los Angeles, look carefully at the airport code. LAX is the international airport of Los Angeles, but you can also see codes like LGB for Long Beach or SNA. Beware of the airport you are going to, since not all are equally well connected. If upon arrival you plan to pick up a rental car and there’s an office there, great, but if not, sometimes private transport becomes...
