March 16 (Sunday) - PART IV: MAR VISTA. Our day thus far: Sloper took Abe and Kishimoto on a sightseeing tour to Chinatown, Griffith Park, and Hollywood. The group even saw a movie star and some TV stars.
On the way to Sloper's apartment, the group stopped at Westside Pavilion so Kishimoto could purchase an American-style mah-jongg set (no longer available in Chinatown since the closing of Imperial Dragon), but the Gamekeepers shop was closed. The group then adjourned to Sloper's apartment in Mar Vista (west side of Los Angeles).
Morris rejoined the group for an evening of American style mah-jongg, in preparation for a later planned event. Sloper coached the delegates on American strategy.
