Remembering the South Bay

2009-05-13 22:05:00-0700

Just arrived at Gecko's place after dinner and drinks with Kyung at Kat at 99 Chickens in Santa Clara. Driving towards 101 on Great America Parkway with Kaskade on, anticipating the freeway with that electronic music pouring in my ears and filling my veins, I recalled some of the exciting appeal of the South Bay. Like most lifestyles, it can be awesome if you know how it works and know how to find the joys in it. I also think that it's easier to enjoy the South Bay when you are comfortable driving long distances to go to the places you know you will enjoy, and hence it will get better the more time you spend in the SFBA.
