Everyone got to take a pre-soaked skewer and design their perfect kebab.
They were then sprinkled with the yummy seasonings and cooked on our make-shift grill.
They came out chary and juicy (especially the grape tomatoes)
I gobbled down too many to count - they were fun and deliciously healthy...
wow... my forehead seems to be growing...

WOW! SUSHI MASTER!
My trip to Northern Cali...
First Stop: Stockton California
I have to say that Stockton was not as bad as I thought it would be... Lots of new development and trendy shops... I guess the central valley is trying to come up in the world. Still not much to do at night - I mostly overate at outback and applebees and slept in my hotel which was nice (what I expect from a courtyard)
Second Stop: San Jose California
2 days in the bay... I spent the last part of my trip in San Jose - which was uneventful - I stayed in the very cute and efficient TownePlace Suites in Campbell - I have to say that if I lived in a big city this is what kind of little apartment I would want to live in. There was a living room/bedroom area, small fully equipped kitchen with a fridge (to keep the vodka and leftovers cold) and a nice size bathroom. I will definitely put the TownePlace brand on my Marriott radar when I travel again.
I was good this time and actually rented a compact car; a Hyundai Sonata - after a week I'm not a fan - it was full of cheap plastic and had a very small engine with no pickup...
WOW - those models really add a lot to the car... hi pretty ladies...
The highlight of my trip was a fun excursion on the BART (I have a love for anything public transport) So I got on the train in Union City and took it up to Oakland - it moved so much faster than the Metrolink, but was ohh so dirty - here is a little video of me getting on the northbound train:
