When foreign dignitaries come to LA, they hang out with the mayor, the celebs, the heads of big business... LAist ends up having to entertain their barely legal daughters. We all have our crosses to bear.

Last weekend we got a phone call to spend the afternoon with a young lady who is considering coming to LA for "university", but her parents thought that our fair city would teach her to be a gas guzzling ugly American. So we took her on a busride from Los Feliz to the Atwater Village Street Fair, and then a busride to Echo Park, and then over to Little Armenia.

We walked a lot too. And took pics. Tons and tons after the jump...
