Came to San José last week for the filmfestival Cinequest where David's animated short documentary Ladyboy was screened.
We had a couple of days there and had some time to walk around the city in the lovely sun.
This is mostly photos from our second day in San José. I was too jetlagged to remember my camera on the first day.
Hotel window. Photo taken when waiting for the elevator to arrive.
Love that there's a tree popping up from the sidewalk.
San José Fire Department showed up. Look at the lady to the right; does gravitation not work properly on her?
San Pedro Square sign.
Went to a pastry shop called Bijan bakery and café where they had A LOT of pastries from all over the place. Especially european baked goods.
David looks like an old man in this picture. Can't stop laughing when I look at this.
So many pretty cakes!
Made a friend.
Made another friend.
The streets are so wide in this country!
Colourful bunting by the used car lot.
In the evening we went to California Theatre for the award ceremony. This is one beautiful theatre.
The blurry man by the organ was not blurry in real life. He was playing film music, it was really cool.
All the film makers got to come up on stage for the award ceremony. Sadly David's film didn't win but the screenings were really appreciated and people seemed to love "Ladyboy" so that was fun.
After that David and I went for an evening stroll in search for a convenience store that sold real food. Not just chips, candy and junk that seems to be all they sell everywhere. We found one with fruit and vegetables and it felt like heaven!
And then we came back to our hotel and fell asleep by 8 pm and slept badly for eleven hours. Jetlag is a bitch.
