We’ve arrived!

After a long day of travel in planes & a bus, we have finally made it to our hotel. Although we are tired, we are all very excited to be here. The city of San Jose is beautiful. There are mountains everywhere and so many types of flowering plants. Everything is green and lush. I was surprised at the cooler temperature. I expected to be physically assaulted by the heat, but it was nothing close to that.
After settling down in our rooms, we were treated to a wonderful 3-course welcome dinner at the end of the evening. Today we are touring Performance Excellence Solutions, a consulting company founded by UMass Lowell alumni Edwin Garro. I am looking forward to hearing his story.
