Now that registration is over and I finally have a minute to blog, I'll finish out my trip review. If so much time hadn't passed, you'd probably get a much more detailed description, but it's been a couple of weeks so this is the best I can do:
- I ate crab. A LOT of crab. And it was so good.
- Baltimore is kind of a shady city when you get away from the harbor.
- We rode a train from DC to Baltimore. It cost $7 and took 1 hour. WHY don't we use trains more in the south?
- Maryland has got some seriously tasty crab.
The one part of the trip that I won't skim over is my reunion visit with some old friends. I graduated high school with Brian and worked with his wife Alice at a day care forever ago. We have only seen each other a couple of times since, but I knew they lived in the DC area. They drove all the way to Baltimore with their two daughters--one of which is only 8 weeks old!--to see me. It was so fantastic to get to spend the afternoon with them. Their daughter Mili is maybe the cutest little girl I have ever seen--next to Abby, of course. Here's a shot of us on the harbor:
Okay, something's wrong with Blogger's website and it's not letting me download pictures. I could just save this entry as a draft and finish it later, but I want everyone to know that I did indeed write it, so you're just going to have to wait until later for the pictures.
Halloween pictures and the story of the foolish man who crossed me at the Razorback game Saturday are ahead. Speaking of the Razorbacks, GO HOGS!
