Typically having had just enough time to finally adjust my various mental and physical cycles by 8 hours to GMT-7, I’ve returned and am undergoing the exact same process in reverse. As such I’m feeling a bit rough but at least I can adjust in familiar surroundings.
In the meantime, here’s a few photos of me doing the rounds at various Silicon Valley locations (click for full size versions):
I managed a few hours in downtown San Francisco too on Sunday before heading back to get the flight (all of yesterday was travelling, what fun), which was ok I guess. This was more of a business / tech trip than anything else and I must admit that once all that was done (and it was pretty hectic), I wasn’t really in the right frame of mind for general tourism. Beyond that, travelling alone for business & geekery is fine, but when it comes to leisure tourism, it’s best enjoyed in company. I only had a few hours spare on this trip anyway as I said (thus it wasn’t worth Marie coming along this time) but I did find myself thinking that those hours would have been much more fun had they been shared.
Anyhow, I’m starting to catch up now, best give me a day or so to re-acclimatise if you’re waiting for a reply to something.
