and didn't see much of the real LA...too bad.

It's a pity they are so enamored with the auto and giving so much space to roads to the detriment of human space. With that climate and that setting, those sidewalks should be much wider to take advantage of these factors. The latent potential LA has to be a city that everyone wants to live in or visit is formidable. What a pity no one seems to know how to harness it properly in terms of planning/design of the urban environment to bring such potential to light. Reminds me of the stupidity you can find in Washington, D.C, with its tiny sidewalks in Georgetown (people walking on top of parked cars and traffic) for the busiest, most interesting and fun shopping area in town. However you can't really enjoy it because there is no room to walk. Instead of enjoying it, you are too busy falling over other people and trying to avoid being pushed into the traffic.

Wow! It looks so third world.

As I travel more and more I realize that America really is a 3rd world country. In every major city only about 25% to 10% of it is nice, pretty and well kept, while 75%-90% of the cities are favelas, ghettos, shanty-towns, whatever you want to call them. And when you leave big cities and venture into small towns it is even worse. I never realized how poor America really is until I started to travel.

There's increased penalties for crime within certain areas?
What exactly is the purpose?

Honestly, if you think this looks third world or like a shanty town you really haven't traveled much.

Amazing LA!!

But I had the idea that people in LA were like in Rio: al fit and tanned, with incredible shapes, like people in Rio. I didnīt know there were so many fat people in LA!!

Third world country? While it is true that American cities are all ( except perhaps for Boston ) much more dirty and dangerous and not nearly as well-kept as the European, Australian or Japanese cities, and their downtown areas ( except for NY, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Philly ) are architecturally much poorer than their European counterparts, calling any American city a third world country is a bit too much. While I personaly dislike LA out of many reasons, and while it does have serious problems with the gangs, Los Angeles is probably the most important global center of mass culture ( Holywood ) and a very multicultural city. It lies on a relatively favourable geographical location, between the sea and the high mountains and has nice climate that enables summer tourism all year long. With good city planing ( major investments in the rail and subway network, promoting cycling and sports more, more parks in the downtown area, more midrises and highrises across the city ), LA could become Tokyo or Shangai on the other side of the Pacific. Unfortunately the city is light years behind Tokyo.
