Silicon Valley: Trip Blog by Jasmine & PaYing

Sunday April 5th 2009

Our morning started at the Comfort Inn & Suites for breakfast. After breakfast we made our way to the Tech Museum of Innovation. We then had a chance to look at a lot of exhibits. For example, we made our own roller coaster on the computer then we used our ticket to save our design and then scanned the ticket onto the simulator and were able to see our design in action. We enjoyed lunch in the museum and then got tickets to see "The Magic of Flight" in the IMAX Dome Theater. Afterwards we left the museum and went to our hotel for the next three days Mariana's Inn where some of us swam in the pool and played Marco Polo and others layed by the pool and relaxed under the sun. Later we went to Dave and Buster's for dinner. D & B is like a grown up Chuck E Cheese minus the pizza. Our food was delicious. After dinner we played in the giant arcade. PaYing played the "spin and win" game and one the first try won 20 tickets then the second try she won 1,000 bonus tickets. It was really fun and we had a great time.

After playing in the arcade we left and drove to Walgreen's to pick up snacks and whatever else we wanted. We left and came back to the hotel and had a group meeting to plan/discuss our presentation at Apple. We were paired up with people that were the same year or section that we had been assigned to. For example: brief ITA info (section 1) was presented by Kalia and Cristina, freshman year (section 2) was presented by Ivan and David, sophomore year (section 3) was presented by Tenzin and Lejia, junior year (section 4) was presented by Pari and PaYing and finally senior year (section 5) was presented by Jasmine and Quentin.

We learned a lot today and also had lots of fun. Thanks for taking the time to read our blog and please check this page again for more updates/blogs.
