Hey guys – some really cool news. Our longtime driver and friend Don Dangerfield Baisa is on the cover of today’s Los Angeles Times in a full article about his life as a tour guide in Hollywood!
That’s right, the story shared the front page with other big-deal headlines, like Elections in Egypt and the Levitated Mass opening at LACMA. From the abbreviated online LA Times article (the full story in the paper is so worth a read):
Baisa…knows what his passengers want during their two-hour journey through Hollywood and Beverly Hills….
Arquette, unsmiling, waves. He pulls a white Avanti convertible into a gated driveway.
“Oh my God!” one Australian tourist gushes. “Hi, David! Hi, David!”
“Yes, this is Hollywood, folks,” Baisa says amid the heightened chatter and iPhone camera flashes. “Where the stars live, work and play.”
The article is an interesting and unflinching look at the diverse characteristics of the modern day Hollywood. We feel honored that our driver of 4+ years Don was chosen for the article and gave such a full portrait. Grab a tall soy latte, stear clear of the homeless man in your favorite chair at Starbucks, and flip through the LA Times and read all about it! I did.
