Racing! Congratulations on Bob Baffert's five-win day

Hello my Name Is John Cherwa and welcome to our newsletter about horse racing, because we are pretty sure...

Happy Halloween. We have a lot of things that don't calm you down. We'll teach you how to become an Instagram star, tell you where to catch the first LA visit of the legendary Polar Express, share some good news about Global Entry and explain why you should watch your intuition in the End. paper, which, not surprisingly, comes to the end.

All this plus the most popular Vegas show and a guide to getting a taxi, Uber or Lyft to get you home safely from LAX. Let's jump on our broom sticks and … away.

See yourself as a great photographer

"I consider myself an amateur photographer," said LA Times associate Christopher Reynolds about his photography, "maybe a & # 39; pramateur & # 39; on my best days." After some photo instructions from Javier Barras of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Reynolds created a real introduction to the photographic possibilities of the city and a compendium of photo tips that offer good advice wherever you are.

His main Barras takeaway food, Reynolds said, is "so simple that it's almost embarrassing: slow down." Barras recommends the use of a tripod, not because "it stabilizes the camera (although that is valuable) but (because) it forces a photographer to think harder and more purposefully about what you should and should not record.

"In the future, I intend to include a number of delaying techniques in my routine, so that, whether I am on a tripod or not, I am not in a hurry to understand this and that."

Viva Lost Vegas

Not Elvis. Tim Burton has staged the show at the Neon Museum in Vegas. The creator of & # 39; The Nightmare Before Christmas & # 39; and & # 39; Corpse Bride & # 39; has items in this collection that carry its inimitable touch (including & # 39; Spiral-Eyed Girl & # 39; and & # 39; Flying Saucers & # 39;). If you can't make Halloween, the show continues until mid-February, writes Mary Forgione.

Train is coming!

And not just a train. The Polar Express is visiting Southern California for the first time and offers the chance to go to the story of the beloved children of Chris Van Allsburg. The train leaves from Fillmore and Perris; Mary Forgione offers other details.

"The Polar Express" is read on board the train journey based on the book. The train arrives at the beginning of December to the L.A. area.

LAX Global Entry Office reopens

The Global Entry office at 11099 S. La Cienega Blvd. suddenly closed in June when staff were sent to the border. That left Long Beach as the closest available place to try and plan the required interview for the first applicants and, occasionally, some innovative cardholders. Waiting times became longer and the patience of applicants became shorter. Now, more than four months later, the LAX Global Entry office has been reopened and can schedule interviews.

Cruise ship Cost savings

Maybe you have always wanted to see the Norwegian fjords or the glaciers of Alaska. Or maybe you dreamed of seeing the gin-clear water of the Caribbean or the sun-drenched Mediterranean Sea. And then you say, "not happening", not because you don't like to travel, but because we all have budgets to consider. Rosemary McClure explains how a cruise can open the door to places that might otherwise fall outside your budget.

Row of shops at the Creek Street in Ketchikan, Alaska. Perhaps the cheapest way to see Alaska's glaciers and cities, such as Ketchikan, is by cruise ship.

Uber, Lyft and taxi pick-up have a new home at LAX

On Tuesday, LAX started its new LAX-it lot near Terminal 1, where you can take your ride or take a taxi. You can walk if you are in a nearby terminal, or you can take a shuttle bus. Christopher Reynolds tells you how to navigate through the new rules.

Happy holidays on the high seas

"Star Trek" aluminum and LGBTQ activist George Takei will be a guest teacher on a holiday cruise aboard Cunard's Queen Mary 2. Takei will talk about his internment as a child during World War II – which he told in his memoirs. " They Called Us Enemy "& # 39; and discussed at a recent Times Book Club event – and about rubbing elbows with a host of celebrities.

Mendocino for the magic … and the meals

I am not a vegan, but I find that I feel much better if I only eat vegetable food. That partly attracted me to the Weekend Escape from Dorothy D & Donnell to a Mendocino resort where the cuisine is gourmet and vegan. Come for dinner, stay for what she describes as a & # 39; chill New Age vibe & # 39 ;.

A stroll through the beautiful gardens of the Stanford Inn is a popular pastime for guests and their pets.

What we read

Nigel Richardson, who writes for the Telegraph, asks this question: What is it about tourists who think they have to overcome things? Ricardson is in a hurry to climb Uluru / Ayers Rock in Australia before the October 26 deadline, leaving walkers a place sacred to the Anangu people.

To the point of Christopher Reynolds in his story with photo tips mentioned above, do not take a photo without first talking to the subject. In Kyoto, Japan, the fine could be a fine of around $ 100, NHK reports. Sufficient residents in the Gion district have complained that tourists are taking photos of geishes without permission and are pulling their kimonos into their own alleys.

If you like Notre-Dame, you will be drawn to Ken Follett's "Notre-Dame: A Brief History of the Meaning of Cathedrals", which was published this week. Even if you don't joke about it, you can still feel attracted to this short book full the kind of writing that has made Follett a best-selling author. His heartache when he saw the Notre-Dame burning on 15 April is almost palpable; his description of Charles de Gaulle's triumphant march to the cathedral after the liberation of Paris is an investigation into how power is granted to himself.

Flames and clouds of smoke come from the Notre Dame of Paris, which was badly damaged by the fire of 15 April.

End of paper

"I just don't think I can do this," I told the man who was riding a Harley next to the one I was driving. We were warming up the bikes in preparation for an event at our national convention.

I was right, which is not often the case, but this time it is. Within seconds of saying that, I took a sharp turn and went down. Fortunately I didn't go fast. The bike was fine, which was good because it wasn't mine. I usually thought it was fine except a black eye, broken glasses, lots of bruises and some rash on my face. My pride, however, was shattered and proved again that it is before the fall.

That lesson about listening to your own voice, internally or externally? It is a good one, especially for travelers. It is true that sometimes we have to be braver than we think we are, but this was not one of them. The bike was too big and heavy for me. I'm not as strong (or tall) as 20 years ago when I started driving. I knew all that. I just didn't listen. The good news? Flab can be unattractive, but it turned out to be an excellent protective coating.

Next time, deep breathing, involved brain, consequences conceived and weighed. Then decide. And maybe I hit the right mix of courage and cowardice before I hit the ground.

Wherever you are, travel safely and well, and we are there to welcome you home, preferably in one piece.
