So it is official I am in the new place and getting used to my “new” yet somewhat familar surroundings. Ladera is a lot like Irvine; however it is more situated up against the hills which provide a great place to explore as I took the time yesterday to do (a much needed break from all the unpacking!).
I have to say these Ladera/Irvineish neighborhoods make me laugh a little bit because any time I go for a walk I can’t help but think of movies like Pleasantville where life and the atmosphere surrounding these neightborhoods is one that gives off the idea of perfection. Always a bit strange and funny to me, but here I am. Home for the next 6 months.
