I left Los Angeles almost three years ago, and I was ready to leave when I did. It’s a big, wide open city that’s essentially taken on the role of America’s Evil Empire, the city everybody can feel a little bit better about themselves by hating. And having lived there, I can say that that they’ve got a lot of good points. But there’s something those foreigners will never understand, and that’s just how much you’ll miss it when it’s gone.
As much as I love travel, I don’t particularly enjoy leaving things behind. There’s a lot of things I miss. But in Los Angeles itself, it’s easy to pinpoint the parts of life I wish I still had. And I’m sure a lot of the other anti-transplants of Los Angeles feel the same. Which, of course, leads me to my next article for Matador Network. Check it out below.
