Yesterday, Friday, we spent a beautiful day in the city of Baltimore. We boarded a University of Maryland bus around 10 and headed of to Charm City. Our first stop was the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM). The sculptures, paintings, postcards, and other art work were all very interesting and beautiful. Most of the subject matter had to do with each individual person expressing their faith. In addition to looking at American modern art, the AGU students also spent a lot of time in the unique gift shop! In fact, some people spent more time looking around there than in the actual museum!

After AVAM we walked over to the Inner Harbor for lunch. A lot of the students had crabcakes, which are very famous in Maryland. Then we boarded the Water Taxi and headed over to Fells Point. At Fells Point a majority of us got Maggie Moo's ice cream. People got some very interesting flavours, including a bright blue ice cream that tasted just like cotton candy! After we all enjoyed our ice cream we jumped back on the Water Taxi to go pedal boating. It was very inexpensive and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves. I was very proud that nobody fell into the water!

Next, we spent an hour or two sitting on the steps in the Inner Harbor. Some people went shopping, some played cards, and some (cough, cough Pig cough, cough) scared little children with a two headed baby.

Finally, we headed over to Camden Yards to watch the Orioles play baseball! I had such an amazing time sitting next to Smiles and A-love-yumi. We all chanted (CHARGE!), cheered, and clapped. We watched a very exciting game that included two Oriole homeruns, a triple, and a victory! After the big win we watched a great fireworks display!

After the game we walked to meet our bus. The bus finally came around 11:30 and we all headed back to College Park.

Thank you, everybody, for another fun day.
