Yay, I found and Internet connection!

Sunday - recap

Well I arrived in San Francisco last night and I spent most of today along with two co-workers exploring the city. Since we only had one day we pretty much only had time to see to usual tourist haunts. We walked through Chinatown, explored Fisherman’s Warf and went on a cable car ride. I took lots of pictures as usual sand will try to post some as soon as I can. As the day drew to a close however it was time to start to making the trek back to San Jose, which is about an hour from San Francisco. Instead of taking the highway however we took the coastal road instead which provided for some great views and traffic jams :-). I finally made it back to San Jose just past 8:00pm, checked into my hotel room and was also able to catch the tail end of the tech summit welcome reception. For the rest of the evening I went with a bunch of other co-workers to a local bar and also made a quick stop to the mother ship in order to check out the digs (very nice by the way).

Monday - so far

The early mornings begin! I was up just after 7:00 am this morning in order to have time to register and have breakfast.

Did I mention the weather yet? Well it is awesome! Yesterday must have been close to 30 degrees! Since we were outside most of the time yesterday I actually got some sun – maybe even a little burn. I have yet to really explore San Jose but am hoping to squeeze some time in during the week to do that. Unfortunately, my schedule is pretty tight all week so my desire to see more of the area may not happen. There is also an aquarium in San Francisco I am hoping to visit. This aquarium has a clear tunnel you can walk through so it feels as though there are fish swimming all around you (jealous Shannon?).

Right now it is early afternoon on Monday. I just finished lunch and skipped the current session since the material being covered I have heard before. Tonight there is an event offsite for everyone that will most probably involve more eating and drinking. I will have to update you on that one on my next posting.

P.S. My web site seems to be taking its sweet time refreshing itself lately so my blogs aren't showing up immediately. All I can hope for is that they will appear soon.
