I am in California now. I do not have Japanese environment in PCs so this time I write in English.
I can read Japanese in my PC so please feel free to write comments in Japanese.
On my arrival at San Fransisco airport, I went to Hertz rentacar. They offered me a deal of “Mercedes Benz” with “car navigation system” with reasonable costs.
The deal was very attractive to me, as I never drove Mercedes in my entire life. Without doubt I took on their offer.
Wow it was Mercedes!!!
Having said that, my driving experiences were quite different from what I have originally imagined.
The acceleration was not that impressive. I had to step hard on the pedal, take some time before it gains speed.
The local traffic was very fast, people drives 70-80 mph (120 – 130 km/h) in San Francisco highways and it was not easy to keep up the speed with my Mercedes.
Overall, I felt as if I was driving “Toyota Corolla” or “Honda Fit” or something like..Plus, the car navigation system was crappy, very hard to use.
But I enjoyed driving in Northern California, with my colleagues from Japan.
San Francisco downtown was beautiful!
Sausalito – Relaxing at San Francisco Bay
Napa Valley – wine tour was really great!
