Coming from a very small town, I really was not used to driving in such busy areas. On some days you could drive for miles without seeing any other car. I was pretty nervous coming into the LA program leading up to August 19th, because of this. So while driving through Nevada, I made a pact with myself that I wouldn’t drive on the freeway. I still have not driven on the freeway, you can get anywhere in LA via the local roads. I have been to Burbank, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Downtown LA, and Santa Monica without driving on any freeway. So to all of the future students from small towns like me, there is no need to fear driving in LA!
