Going native when visiting Los Angeles:
We were visiting Los Angeles. Studying the restaurant listings carefully, I realized that one restaurant we really wanted to eat at was right across the street from our hotel. We walked over and ate there, but not before considering "going native." A real Los Angelan would have driven there to eat. It was, after all, a six-lane street, and the restaurant had a parking lot.
