I am the alpha and the omega

First Week

I know that I have not blogged for a while. Or bloghopped. But work catches up, you know.

I never realized that working in an industry could be so demanding.

My day starts at 7:30 am. And I start working at 9:30 am. Till about 6 - 6:30 pm. And probably later, as the weeks go by. Dinner and some roaming around (by getting lost) follows. By the time I come home, I am so exhausted, all I manage to do is to go to sleep.

But aside from that, I am enjoying work. Where else can you get perks like almost free (and really delicious) food for lunch and dinner, unlimited supply of coffee, tea, soft drinks, and a really good friendly work environment. Really makes me want to work more.

California - is a wonderful place, to live in.

  • Where else can you enjoy the splendor of the Yosemite.
  • Where else can you gape at the grandeur of the Sequoia.
  • Where else can you relax at the pristine beauty of Lake Tahoe - one of the larger inland lakes in USA.
  • Where else can you enjoy miles of unspoilt beaches and scenic drives along Route 1.
  • Where else can you have aquatic adventures like the Monterey Bay Aquarium
  • Where else can you walk along one of the most b-e-a-utiful bridge - the Golden Gate and the mystic China Town in less than a day.
  • Where else can you walk with the stars than in Hollywood.

These and many more, await me. And I plan to accomplish them in the following many week(ends). I just started by going to Monterey Bay Aquarium following a drive along the scenic California 1.

Starting from San Jose, we drove towards and through the hills that separate the Bay area and the coast. Following a winding road through the hills, I was actually surprised to find pastureland and cows there. Just the emptiness of that region took me by surprise.
What followed next was a drive along the Route 1, which snakes its way between the hills and the sea hugging cliffs as it goes along. Here we are at one of the desolate beaches that was desecrated by us.

Dont try too hard, I am not in there

An hour's drive later, through Santa Cruz and beyond, we arrived at Monterey. Santa Cruz has really nice beaches, but I did not have time to go there; shall probably get there some other day.
One thing that I did realize is NOT to go to that place on a weekend - it is packed. With People. It is like everybody had the same plans as us. But I did spend some quality time at the Aquarium.

A drive to one of the beaches nearby resulted in this - the Lone Cypress.

The Lone Cypress - wonder why its called so!

This view was probably enough to satiate me for the rest of the weekend. But today, I am off to the mighty Sierras...
