How one day at Google in Mountain View can change your life....

So many things have happened in the last 2 days that I don t even know where to start from. Yesterday I had a wonderful day in Palo Alto: first the conference, then a meeting with Heidi. We hadn't seen each other for almost 3 years, so it was absolutely wonderful meeting with her and spend some time together chit chatting. We had a coffee at Stanford book store then we drove to a burger place in Palo Alto..and Erkki was obviously with us!!
Today the day started with a meeting at Google's headquarters in Mountain View..o my!! Google complex is such a fascinating place!!
Then Erkki and I took a train and went to San Francisco (we missed the "bullett" train, it took us something like 1,5 hour!)...we walked from Caltrain Depot to the Fisherman's Wharf..almost 6 miles..but every single mile was worth the effort.
I love the Silicon Valley, I love the energy one can breath here, It makes you think that everything can be possible!!

P.P.S. Obviously I went shopping in Frisco..I bought  a beautiful leather bag...:)))
