If you don’t look down, Hollywood Boulevard looks like an ordinary street. There are no architectural masterpieces, it’s not very clean and it’s full of little souvenir shops. In the evening teenagers often come to sing and dance here. They pay no attention to the tourists and the stars in concrete.
