- I came to San Jose on May 13, 2007 to participate in a great show: San Jose Blues Festival with the famous Buddy Guy. Since Buddy Guy was performing in the evening and I had plenty of time to enjoy, I made a little tour around San Jose Downtown, a city of high tech, the center of Silicon Valley, but the place where Spanish influence is unmistakenly present. Here is a little essay about what I saw. All the photos are arranged in order they are taken. It is not a virtual tour like I did earlier, but it gives the impression of space. I apologize to my American friends, sometimes I show in the pictures what is very common and is not considered interesting here. But people from other countries might find it unusual and calling some associations with their own places.

So the festival is actually called "Metro Fountain Blues Festival" and it is produced annually by the associations of students of San Jose State University. The university campus is a wonderful park located right in the downtown of San Jose. The meadows San Carlos Plaza were transformed into music hall and a stage was erected where 6 groups of participants performed for the whole 8 hours.
