original description from en.WP:

"San Jose occupies roughly the centre of the picture, extending to the upper left. Starting at about the top of the urban area and moving clockwise to the bottom of the central urban area (above the colorful salt evaporation ponds at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay), the cities of Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, surround San Jose in a semicircle.

Extending down the lower left side are the cities of Milpitas, Fremont, and possibly San Leandro and Hayward. Extending from the right side of the central area begin the Peninsula cities of Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, Los Altos Hills, and Menlo Park.

California State Route 85 is seen as a large arc across the top of the urban area; California State Route 17 crosses 85 vertically at the centre top and heads into the Santa Cruz mountains. The Dumbarton Bridge crosses the Bay towards the lower right."
