The interview on Tuesday went well. Those, too, are starting to run together. The residents in the program seemed very happy, and, in spite of the fact that they work in Baltimore, very few of them had been shot. What more can you ask for really?

I never thought I would say this, but I may actually be able to see myself spending a few years in Baltimore.

Tuesday night, I made the trip to NYC--a trip I had, apparently, planned while my head was up my ass. (It's really no surprise as I spend most of my time in that position.) A woman in her right mind would have taken the train from Baltimore to New York. Instead, I flew into LaGuardia. Then, I took a city bus into Harlem where I got off at the wrong stop. Then, I took the subway to Penn Station. Then, I took a train to New Jersey. Then, I waited 30 minutes in the freezing rain at 11 pm in a deserted train station for a cabbie that charged me 10 bucks to go 2 miles.

This doctor thing better work out, because I would make one shitty travel agent.

I had a nice time in Baltimore when I was there for a conference a few years back. One piece of advice: if you take the harbor tour via boat, do enjoy the crab dinner and do not get into a drinking contest with a belgian.

I rather thought that too when you explained your itinerary before. Definitely take the train next time!

Ah....crabs in Baltimore. Nothing better.
