  • We went by cable car! La has a fair with crafts and a deck that overlooks the city!!! Beautiful... The day must be clean to see the city! There's an elephant park. It's free but they take a picture at the entrance and make a keychain with that photo. At the end of the tour you can get the keychain for 10.00! We bought more to help maintain the structure! It's pretty cool! There's some elephants!!! And CJ's sign!!!
