I didn't have time to take pictures of these express trains
In the Caltrain, an American passenger asked me whether I am a Japanese citizen or not, when he saw my guidebook whose title was written in Japanese language. Then, he sit on the seat in front of my seat. He said "My friend has gone to Japan, and works as a cook at a hotel in Osaka. And, I'm also a cook. These muffins are what I made today. Please help yourself." I ate one of them.
An accident happened. Though the nearest station of Stanford University is Palo Alto, we passed through the station and reached Santa Clara.
Owing to my mistake, I was able to take the picture of this train
In front of Santa Clara station, we went to a cafe and I ate noodles.
We returned to Palo Alto by taking an express train which doesn't stop any station between Santa Clara and Palo Alto.

Inside the train
From Palo Alto, we took a free bus named "Marguerite Shuttle", in which Wi-fi access is available. My friend said "How blessed those who have the highest academic careers are!"
We walked around the university. But there are few students in the university. It was due to summer vacation.

We returned to Palo Alto to go back to San Francisco. A conductor of the train from Palo Alto to San Francisco was funny. He annnounced as if he had been drunken.

I looked around clothing stores with my friend. But, I lost him at a clothing store. So, I decided to take MUNI lines by alone. At first, I took a train for Balboa Park via K line.

Inside the MUNI Metro
At Ocean Beach, I took MUNI bus to go to SF ZOO, which is the terminus of L line. Most of the passengers on the bus were full of East Asian-American people and African-American people.
I got off near SF ZOO, and took L line for Van Ness.
At last, I ate dinner with Japanese man and woman.
