personal highlights

  1. San Mateo: cute little township between San Francisco and Silicon Valley

  3. Chinese friends: open heartedly treated like family from the very first day
  4. Dinner parties: tasting delicious food and meeting interesting people
  5. Public transportation: so many options - buses, Caltrain and BART
