This is to be read after "96 hrs to L.A. and back!" for continuity.
Before I had left Australia, I had been told that for the driver to be 100% sure i was who i actually said i was, and vice versa, i'd need to do ONE thing.
I would have to remember part of a verse from a poem written by the American Poet Robert Frost, written in 1922, that being from, -"Stopping by woods on a snowy evening"-, and after seeing then approaching the driver i was to say, "The woods are lovely dark and deep but I have promises to keep" then the driver was to reply, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep".
Well i didn't have to look for long, she was the first person who's attention drew mine, almost telepathically, though i don't believe in such. I sauntered up to her and was again taken back by this creature, i'm no monk and i have never lived in a vaccum, but i can say for certain, that i was having a hard time remembering the poem, though i did remember my part and her response was spot on........ i'm really thinking to myself now what is happening, am i in the Twilight zone?
She introduces herself, and I likewise, she begins to explain as we head out of the lobby/lounge area that we have abit of time up our sleeve, and would i like to do alittle sight seeing, I thought that couldn't be half bad, i mean really, look at what had already happened, how much better was this trip gonna get?
As we head out the exit door, my head is swirling with the sensory overload of L.A., she points to the direction the cars parked i'm thinking, but hold on,........ ah she's not, she's actually pointing to the passenger side door of a cream or off white Bugatti Veyron about forty feet away!
Am i begining to hallucinate in all this excitement?, hardly, not with an actual 2006 Bugatti Veyron in front of me!
What a MEGA beast!
Glad i packed light, this cars was hardly to designed for storage area!
Now i do like sportscars no doubt, so to be driven around LA, going to a place i have no idea where it's located, other than it in Topanga Canyon, and to be going to an epic party somewhere still unknown, with a pricy commission on top, it can't get any better than this, though as soon as she fires the beastie up it does, the sound is deafening, tuned to perfection, it just got much better!
I was truly enjoying the sound when she droppped it into gear and laid down i don't know, maybe a 30 -40 metre burnout, to make sure i was awake i guess, she got my full attention from that point on i can assure you!
The last-time this sort of thing happened to me was on the Gumball 3000, in 2008, ah what a race!
I was not at all aware at the time that i was in the hands of a Professional driver, I just thought she was a "full sort " there to meet me at the airport, only later finding this out, as this manouvre and where she did it could only, and would only be done by someone who had 100% confidence in their skill as a driver, and the car in my experiences that is, and in a US $650,000 sportscar, who's really gonna mess around!
