Day One - Jeff's Menlo Park Party
By Roman Strobl on VI 22, 2005
I've just returned from the party at Menlo Park. It was funny, well, at least the second part, which got a bit wild at the end. Here is another picture to my collection of photos with Sun directors and VPs:
But let's start at the beginning... I don't have a car here in US, so I went by train to Menlo Park. I decided to walk from the train station to Sun campus which was a big mistake. For me as a European walking to the end of the 30.000 people city seems to be quite reasonable, but in US this is a hell of a distance. So I managed to get to Sun after one and a half an of an hour of walking around streets full of cars.
As Rammstein sings: "We are living in America, America ist wunderbar". They were looking at me like if I was crazy - I was almost the only pedestrian next to the incredible amounts of cars in the streets. Sigh, why do all the people need so many cars? Why not to use a bike instead? I know it's comfortable, but on the other hand, sitting the whole time in a car is not the best thing for one's health. Enough of complaining about America.
Here are some photos from the party. Enjoy them. I cannot tell any details, people are already angry on me I'm blogging about everything. So I need to be careful, otherwise they may not invite me to the parties anymore!

Any familiar faces?
Did James forget his rum in Menlo Park?
