Christmas 2012

This Christmas, I decided to explore my own city a little more. On Christmas Eve, I went to the California Science Center where space shuttle Endeavour is on display, along with a special Cleopatra exhibition. I have always been fascinated by Egyptian arts and history. After seeing the King Tut exhibit in San Francisco in 2010, I was not going to miss this one.

There is a peaceful rose garden serving as a courtyard to the California Science Center, the Natural History Museum, and the African American Museum.

San Jose, CA. October 2012

I visited my good friend Rasheed and his wife Andrea in San Jose in October. I have not been to San Jose in 10 years so I was curious how the area has changed.

I was wondering what one would do when you visit Silicon Valley not for business, but for leisure? Well, you go visit all the famous tech companies that are so intimately embedded in our daily lives, that's what you do.

First up, Google campus. The Android building has some fun "sculptures" right outside.

While walking around the Google campus, we noticed these colorful "Google bikes" parked everywhere. This makes going from one building to another around the campus super easy and fun.
