Hooray for Hefner!

I was horrified when I read in the news recently that the iconic Hollywood sign was very nearly abolished. Having always wanted to visit the star-studded neighbourhood  I cannot invision the experience without getting a snapshot of the famous sign. Luckily for me, the sign was saved by Hugh Hefner. The king of Playboy made a donation to save the sign from property developers…he described the landmark as “Hollywood’s Eifel Tower”. Read the full news story here.

The iconic Hollywood sign

 As I recently travelled back home from University I couldn’t help but smile when I drove passed Basildon’s answer to the famous sign alongside the A127…priceless.

Whatever next...Bas Vagas?
