San Jose

by in San Jose, USA

Introduction

Visit to San Jose was mostly a diversion from going into San Francisco, but also and to have a look around the other cities in the SF area, and to appease Kim’s curiosity – she was here 28 years ago.

It is obvious that the Silicon Valley companies have bought great riches to San Jose, as the city is now a mix of modern and older architecture styles.

Visually, the colours of hills around the city is close to what you would expect to see around Canberra in late February – fawns, browns, grays and some olive greens.

Lunch

Lunch was Mexican (of course) at a small place in Post Street. This place appears to be frequented by many locals and (as we discovered when we go inside) also a lot of the local police. Food was very nice, very delicate flavours and a plethora of sauces on the side to spice it up..
