Dmitri moved to California and started working at Google on April 16, 2007. He lived at a corporate apartment in this picturesque part of Santa Clara.
He worked 12 hours a day. But on weekends he drove around the neighboring parts of the country.
For example, these pictures were taken on a mountainous road on the Santa Cruz Ridge.
 These were taken at the Ocean at Half Moon Bay. Firemen were performing an exercise. 
 The ocean is cold, few were swimming in April, but those who did wore drysuits.
