The J. Paul Getty Villa in Malibu.

I went to the new refurbished Villa this past sunday, and I thought I will share some of my pictures with you. This is my first posting in the Los Angeles Forum, I am usually very active in the Latin American Forum, but I do live in Santa Monica for over thirty years now. I had previously visited the old Villa back in the seventies. I am truly amazed at the incredible remodelation that has taken place there.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I will be going again on the 27th, and I will bring you, new pics. Regarding the nature of the beast the man is seating on, I believe it is a hog without the head.

very cool. So are you visiting L.A. or are you moving to L.A.? Maybe just here to work? I'm just wondering becuase of the question you asked about the Westwood Gateway complex.

I have never been there before, but would love to go. It surely is a cultural gem of Los Angeles, with an amazing location to boot.

I just love the amount of cultural diversity that we have here in this city.
