Welcome to El Segundo, California. Sometimes known as Mayberry. This is where I live. El Segundo is a small town in the south bay of LA just north of Manhattan Beach. You may have heard about Qtip leaving his wallet here. When I met my wife she was living and working as a teacher in El Segundo so I’ve had over a decade of history with this town. This summer we sold our house in a neighboring city and moved here. It’s a quaint little town and what makes it so charming (or weird depending on your frame of reference) is that it doesn’t feel like Los Angeles. At all. That’s why we moved here.
Case in point. The High School Homecoming Parade is an annual event that is attended by a lot of the city residents. I have been going for years because my wife is in charge of the parade and our kids love it. Every year I sit there and wonder how is it possible I am still in Los Angeles.
