Swimming - my favorite sport. I really love UCLA’s Sunset Recreation Center. The weather here is fantastic for outdoor swimming. Hiking - I just bought a book which lists 50 best hiking routine in LA, it is a great challenge to hike every route. But I will try. Photography - not professional but quite serious.
