California evening

It’s been an amazing week. Pick my jaw up off the ground amazing.

I’ve met amazing people, seen amazing things, been frozen in Yorkshire and overfed in California. If there’s a thing this week, though, it had to be visiting Google’s campus in San Jose. It was like walking straight back into the best of dotcom culture but on an unimaginable scale. Never mind product, their achievement in remaining true to that ethic and scaling it hundreds of times over is just staggering. That will stay with me.

Tomorrow I will drop my bags at the airport and take the transit system into San Francisco, change to the cable cars down to Fisherman’s Wharf where I’ll eat crab on the sidewalk and wander. When I’ve had my wander-fill I’ll get back on the cable car, possibly picking up a martini at Top of the Mark, and head back to the airport for the redeye to Atlanta and Raleigh. After a day with Ben and Anna I begin the last leg before getting back to the Three.
