The City of Los Angeles.

I celebrated New Years 2013 in Chinatown Los Angeles. We got drinks in some bar with a DJ off an empty plaza. Groups of smokers stood apart here and there. ...

We had driven from East Hollywood. What way I'm not sure; the 101 to surface streets I guess. Four-lane streets with dim lights and warehouses. We circled several blocks twice to find parking. Red curbs and yellow curbs. ...

We made out at midnight and left soon after. Where to I don't remember. As they smoked I looked across the plaza. I couldn't see Downtown. To the north Chinatown ended abruptly at an on-ramp. We would be anywhere. ...

Somehow we got turned around. She clicked lock/unlock to find the car. We were in love but not happy. LA was a blank page, an abstruse map. And I was lost. ...
