We have arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area. We're staying at andres_s_p_b's uncle's house in San Jose until our furniture gets here, which will happen on the 3rd. Today we signed most of the lease papers for our new place, then got local maps and the cashier's check we need for the deposit and first month's rent and so on. Tomorrow we will do the pre-move-in inspection and get keys. We may get the utilities set up today, or we may go get some groceries and do utilities tomorrow.
Last night, after we arrived, we pondered the concept of dinner for a while. "I feel like Thai," I said, and thanks to the magic of Google Maps, not ten minutes later we found ourselves in a lovely little Thai restaurant with great food.
Also, while we were exploring earlier, we entered a grocery store (we thought it had a bank in it, to get the cashier's check, but it only had an ATM) and there was a huuuuuge display of avocados at 10 for $10.
