The Parentals Go To Baltimore, Part 1: Fire

First of all, I would like to set the record straight. It wasn't us who set off the fire alarm at 5:00am Friday morning. Really. And to the guy who came down to the lobby in his underwear: come on - how long would it have taken you to put on a pair of pants? Even if it wasn't a false alarm.

The hotel staff provided coffee and an odd assortment of pastries to make up for having woken us up practically in the middle of the night and for not being able to turn the alarm off for hours.

I think the danish on the bottom shelf were Pesachdick.

So maybe we wouldn't have gotten such an early start otherwise, but we now we know how picturesque Baltimore is at dawn.

An interesting Baltimore Fact: After the 1904 fire (nothing to do with us) , many bricks were reused. You can see many blackened bricks in buildings all over downtown.

This was hanging out near Fort McHenry while we were there.

The 4th of July fireworks display in the Inner Harbor was very nice. No pictures however, since we staked out a spot while it was still shabbos. So if you want to get your fireworks fix, go to this site:
