Yesterday I settled into what will be home for the next three months (photos to follow) before visiting the local supermarket to stock up with food. This was ‘Whole Foods’, a superstore famed for its moral values, so nearly everything I brought there was organic – but without the prices you would expect in the UK.

Hopefully I will have something more insightful and thoughtful to say in the next week, but needless to say, all comments and e-mails are very much welcomed. Hopefully time permitting I can reward you with many photos of Palo Alto and San Francisco, and perhaps even a podcast or two. This all of course depends on how long I have to wait to get my hands on a lovely new MacBook Pro!
