Palo Alto and Stanford


Another beautiful sunny California day today! It was my first time in Palo Alto, and I enjoyed bicycling around the town and the university.

Because of the weather and the flat terrain, Palo Alto is wonderful for bicycling, and my host Rose had told me that their bicycle mode-share for children getting to school is among the best in the nation, close to 50 percent!

Although the sun was warm, the city was also full of beautiful autumn color in the trees, which I enjoyed while cycling the bike boulevards. And a lovely surprise was the cactus garden on the Stanford campus!

I also visited another old-time 1970s natural-foods store in Palo Alto, Country Sun Natural Foods. They had a beautiful mural on the side of the building.

This evening I’m staying with different hosts, in the suburb of Redwood City just north of Palo Alto. (A bit of a backtrack to accommodate everyone’s schedules.) We went for a nice evening stroll tonight, and then had some rich conversation on a variety of topics.

Tomorrow I’m heading south to Campbell, just outside of San Jose.
