Last night was… magical. We bombed it to Westwood, Los Angeles at around 11pm to gobble up the “best ice cream sandwiches in America” – and for only a dollar seventy-five! This magical slice of heaven is called Diddy Reise which can be found on Broxton Ave, Westwood. You choose 2 cookies (chocolate chip, white chocolate chip, chocolate chocolate chip, candy chip, sugar, almond – you name it, they have it) and then you choose the ice cream filling! Oh my goodness…. so, I’ll let you into a teeny tiny secret, I went for one white chocolate chip cookie and one chocolate chip cookie with espresso chip ice cream as my filler. It was AMAZING. It’s messy, gooey, delightful… and all for under $2! Bloody bargain if you ask me.
Westwood is also the home of the famous UCLA campus, so we thought we’d invade for a little while. We found the library with its cathedral-like ceiling and the humanities building, all were pristine and beautiful of course. What could be better than this? The piano outside the college theatre (yes, they have a theatre!) asking us politely to “play me, I’m yours”, maybe? Lovely. As the rain came down we danced by the fountain. The view from that fountain is mesmerising, even at midnight with the rain coming down hard… Oh UCLA, I will come back some day!
