I want to go see Japan. I have also always wanted to see Los Angeles (and really every state and major city in the USA, but don't have time for that) So I think I will go before this summer ends, or maybe early Sept. I'd like to stay in hostels because I have a lot of fun when I go to those places. Lots of drinking and new people to meet. Is it safe to go to LA/safe to go there and stay in a hostel? I imagine it's not based on music by Dr. Dre but I have no idea. I'd also like to do an open mic comedy night in L.A. and tell some jokes about how much I like Kanye West. What should I see in Japan? I was thinking I'd stay in Japan for 1 week and spend maybe 3-4 days in LA. I think I will fly first to Japan and hit LA on my way back.
