Palo Alto? Ikea!
So what to do with some spare time in the US?
After recovering from some cold – don’t stay in the cold outside even if over the day you where too hot as the aircondition and the weather will kill you *grrrrrr* – I went to the delicious birthday bash at Yahoo. As most options travelling there where not really compelling I engaged in my first adventure of getting a rental car ever.
It wasn’t as bad as expected – after all I was a bit concerned about this automatic gear. I still prefer stick, but I can deal with the other one now.
Fox Rental around my hotel was okay but lacked customer service, which is why I took the free miles option to drive a bit around the hotel in south San Francisco – to find a Hertz Station. Which turned out to be wonderfully nice in service. If you ever need to rent there – head for the South San Fran Hertz station at south boulevard.
I still have not manage to find a normal supermarket, but had another reason to rent again today (and over the weekend): Ikea.
When passing Palo Alto on my way to Yahoo I saw familar coloring of yellow and blue. And when I asked Maryam Scoble about meeting she suggested Palo Alot (which I love). To which I added “Great! I can make a visit to Ikea first”.
And the magic words came: “I want to go too!”. Other visit wineries, I have more fun at Ikea. So Maryam and I are hooking up for a truly girly experience: Visiting Ikea with nothing special in mind to shop. :) :)
