I'm Alive...and in Beautiful Baltimore!

For the next couple months, I'll be calling Baltimore home.

My boyfriend, Michael, was honored to receive an internship position with the White House, and fate so had it that a friend of a friend had a place too lucrative to pass up in Baltimore (about an hour from D.C.).

This post is just a message that this blog will resume normal posting shortly.

As far as Baltimore observations, one word: rows. Row houses everywhere. Tons of business districts. Lots of people walking. But it's only my first day, so give me a while to collect my thoughts.

Thanks to those of you still checking this site for the end of my dry spell! More to come soon...I promise.

You are going to fall in love with that city. It's St. Louis on the East Coast, yet you can be in DC in 40 minutes, Philly in 1 1/2 hours, and NYC in 2 1/2 hours. Can't beat it. I hope you still want to come home one day.

I would say "dig deep". I've been to Baltimore many times and have loved it there. The food is excellent and the sights are beautiful.

Go out to the shore and check out Annapolis, and in town, go to the many soft shelled crab places.

But then dig into their distressed neighborhoods. What is different and similar to what you see here?

Good luck in Baltimore. I was starting to miss DC urban planning, and would be interested in your take comparing to STL. Have fun!
