It happened a lot of times when I was in the US that I found myself in a movie. Well, the feeling of it. Police cars always make me think someone is watching a movie at high volume. Hugh cars like pickups remind me immediately the United States. And it happened a few times entering a restaurant.
Like a Taco shop on the way to Los Angeles. I just entered the shop and felt in the fifties. Soft colors, old tables and benches, one Mexican man sitting lonely eating his tacos, background music… It just hit me! I loved it a lot. The most beautiful in this Taco shop was that it seemed so original so normal.. here time just stood still.
Of course we were also at a few vintage car shows and oftentimes I found shops with vintage clothes, from the fifties and sixties. Had a lot of fun even to try some dresses, they were so nice! Like the music I could listen ..
In L.A. We were later at Mel’s Drive-in. That is a kind of restaurant/cafeteria like the fifties. Nice as well but it seemed to me much less original. Like done for passionates of those times. Of course the jukeboxes were the best!
We were in others as well but non so ‘original’ like the Taco shop somewhere I don’t remember. I just loved it! And I had no petticoat on….
