Sunday, May 9, 2010, San Jose, CA
Today our ISEF journey began. Despite our seven-hour plane ride and nearly missing our connecting flight we’re finally in San José. After checking into the quaint Saint Claire hotel we dropped off our luggage and headed to the delectable restaurant, Il Fornaio to recharge. Stuffed from traditional Italian dishes, we headed to check our project status and to the pin exchange to mingle with the other finalists. To our relief all projects were delivered intact and we can relax until set up tomorrow. At the pin exchange we met students from places as far as Germany, China and Japan. Everyone is exhausted from traveling but can’t wait for the competition to begin.
