California Loving

Caetano Veloso-00852As many of you know, I travelled to California earlier this month to celebrate my best friend Julia’s 20th birthday. I left Thursday afternoon after my classes, and flew back Sunday night. While I wasn’t there for a very long time, it definitely felt like it because my days were packed from morning till night.PaloAltoParty-00723PaloAltoParty-00721PaloAltoParty-00725

We got these cards to access the building. Julia chose the most awkward picture for my ID and “forced” me to take a picture of the two to compare them. Its okay, because I obviously look much better. (Julia an I have been making fun of each other since I was in 3rd and she was in 5th grade).PaloAltoParty-00727PaloAltoParty-00743 PaloAltoParty-00736

Stanford Shopping Mall is probably the only Mall I would ever consider spending a significant amount of time at. Its outdoors (thanks to the California weather) so you don’t get claustrophobic. Look at how beautiful it is!
