Yesterday, we had to work away a huge backlog, so we rewarded ourselves with some brainless entertainment:
This morning, we continued our series of meetings. Our first meeting with Alfresco started at Starbucks. From there we drove to Palo Alto for a meeting with SAP:
I wonder: do they have a copy "iText in Action" in the SAP library?
But it isn't all work and no play. We found an Angry Birds Post-It war and a small basket ball court:
In any case, the scenery is magnificent. I really like Palo Alto:
I wish every meeting could be like the one we had at SAP: we talked for half an hour or maybe three quarters of an hour. In any case: we didn't waste any time with chit-chat. The discussion was to the point, and with a clear call to action. I like it that way.
After our visit to SAP, we drove to the Plug & Play Tech Center in Sunnyvale:
The Belgian cubicle looked deserted:
In spite of the fact that it's now shared with Singapore:
We rewarded ourselves for this interesting day with a visit to the Westfield Valley Fair in Santa Clara. We bought some presents for our nieces, but unfortunately, we didn't find anything for auntie Marjan. Maybe we can please her with the bags of the presents for her daughters:
In the evening, we had dinner at Dish Dash in Murphy Avenue (downtown Sunnyvale). The restaurant was suggested by Pam, Andrew Binstock's spouse. The food was delicious!
Time flies. We have two more days left before we fly home. We could get used at this ;-)
