Baltimore Recap

Because Georgetown is a Jesuit university, we have Easter break in addition to spring break. I couldn't justify going home again after only being back on campus for two weeks, so I made the most of my time off by sleeping in, catching up on Netflix, and finally visiting my friend Nico at Johns Hopkins. Nico has come to Georgetown, and I've been trying to make it to Baltimore all year but could never find the time. He promised me the trip would be quick and easy, and man was he right!

I took the first train from Union Station on Sunday morning and arrived at Penn Station only an hour later. Plus, my tickets were only $8 each--perfect for a college girl on a budget! Nico picked me up from the train station and we headed to campus, where we got crêpes and walked around. After dropping off my bags, we headed to the Baltimore Museum of Art, which is pretty much on Hopkins' campus and has an impressive collection.

Nico was kind enough to take me to the Johns Hopkins Hospital and School of Public Health, which I was absolutely thrilled about. We had fun exploring both of them and dreaming about studying or working there someday. Also, is that not the prettiest medical school you've ever seen?

Just as the sun came out, we headed to the Inner Harbor, which was bustling with activity. We walked around until we were ready for dinner, at which point we went to the Mount Vernon Marketplace, a food court with a diverse selection. We finished off the day with a trip to the local ice cream shop, The Charmery, for a delicious treat.

I didn't have classes on Monday either, so I was able to sit in on one of Nico's and experience a day in the life of a Hopkins student (though I chose to forgo his early chemistry class in favor of sleeping an extra hour). After lunch at an on-campus café, we grabbed coffee and pastries in Fells Point, and then I had to head back to the train station.

Thanks, Nico, for showing me around your beautiful home!
