At one point the music on the stereo stopped and the guy rushed over to put something else on and called out 'sorry the music stopped!' to us! Funny and awkward at the same time! San Jose is at some elevation, it's surrounded by mountains and we were actually quite cold at night for the first time! It's not the most interesting ...
