Another one of our friends is moving away from the Bay Area. That makes the third family in the past year. Jamie and his family up to Portland in order to buy a house since the market is berserk here; Sam and his family down to Orange County due to work relocation and now Scott and his family to Japan, also in order to be able to buy a house, escape monthly rent hell and to improve the conditions necessary for good family life.
Normal families have a very hard time getting started her in the Bay and this technology boom is having very personal consequences – it is causing our friends to move away and I don’t like it.
So, on July 25th we celebrated Scott’s birthday at Indian Springs Park and said our goodbyes along with wishful promises to perhaps meet up in Japan someday.
