Bay Area vs Randstad

Posted on Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I finally got to overlay my SF-NASA Ames commute on a map of the Dutch Randstad. This is what it looks like. SF to NASA Ames/Moffett Field is comparable to the distance Amsterdam-Delft. I did a fair bit of Amsterdam-Delft commuting when i was living in Amsterdam while studying in Delft so it's no surprise that the distances are comparable. It sorta felt that way. Been doing the SF-Moffett Field commute for 2 years now, and it started to show...
