  • Getting Around in Silicon Valley

    My family and I moved to San Mateo, CA (Mid Peninsula, San Francisco Bay Area) in Oct 2015 and we’re enjoying our stay here. We were lucky to immigrate with a green card we got through Diversity Visa lottery. The move went smoothly since I have been already working for Frame – a Bay Area […]
