We went to the east side of San Jose to see the giant Jade Buddha for Universal Peace. It is on a world tour.
It was a bit like stepping into another country.
Certainly into another culture.
As I looked around at a couple of hundred people there on a late Wednesday afternoon, I couldn't see another caucasian face. I'm sure there must have been some, but I couldn't see them.
It was interesting.
The best part was we then went out for Vietnamese Sandwiches.
They are really quite interesting and quite good. If I had not read the restaurant's review on YELP and learned about them, I would not have tried one. The black pearl size soft blobs that zip into your mount thru the oversized straw are tapioca.
I really am trying to be more adventurous!
Tonight we are going to the Moose Lodge again for a Prime Rib dinner. $10.00 each. A bit more familiar.
I wonder what I should order to drink. I have completely given up drinking wine or alcohol (another blog). At home I've been drinking Pelligrino water. I wonder if they will have some.
