Our move to North First Street

On December 4, 2018, we picked up the keys to our new apartment, which is located in the North First Street area of San Jose.

The neighborhood is a combination of high-tech, commercial, and residential buildings — a mixture to guarantee that something is always “happening.” We have lived in this area before and hope that it will also suit us now.

Next to our apartment building is the Guadalupe River, which is the dividing line between San Jose and Santa Clara. We love to jog and bike on the levee. The river flows to San Francisco Bay, and the little former port town at the delta, Alviso, has historic interest and cute restaurants.

We also like the fact that we are now much closer to Anna’s new job and places we love to frequent. Examples are Cupertino and Sunnyvale, Mountain View, downtown San Jose, and Palo Alto and Stanford University.
