After a simple breakfast at the hotel, I went to do some simple sight seeing with 2 other trip partners.
We went to see Baltimore's Washington Monument
, the first to honor George Washington.
Beside the monument, there was a nice Methodist Church.
However, among all, I liked this sculpture the most. Love the way how this lion stared at me.
Only about 30 min short visit, we have to go back to our hotel. It was time to depart.
Bye~~~ Baltimore. You are beautiful although too cold for me.
Time to get on the road. See this hill-like thing?
Yes, it was starting to snow when we left Baltimore. The trucks quickly spreaded those saltsand on the road to avoid the road from freezing.
It was a heavy snow.
Soon, the scenery outside our Bumpy Bubba started to get very white. Beautiful view.
However, it was a pain for our driver aka trip planner. Man~~~ she was great. Despite her 1st time on such a snowy highway with a big van of people, she was really calm and controlled her wheel well.
We moved in a very slow speed.
It was indeed a very fresh experience for me. I have never encountered a heavy snow on highway. Another great memory for me during the Baltimore trip.
We stopped for fueling up our Bumpy Bubba.
In case if you wonder why there is no car plate number, the wasn't any.
Well, it is not a rule in N.C. So, basically, most of the car you see do not has a car plate in front.
I once asked a friend why..."Police only chase you from behind."
Geeee... what a point.
There were cars tailed behind us to wait for their turn for the gasoline.
G used the time to throw some snow balls to the Bumpy Bubba. -_-"""
While waiting for our turn for Small Number ( a local way in my hometown for saying PEE), the girls fully utilized the time take some pictures. ^_^
Oh ya, this were the 2 Japanese songs I introduced to them during the topic special in the van. The "In" song
and the "Out" song
. The whole van of people had a very good laugh. Yes, these 2 songs exist.
Our bumpy bubba was full. It was ours turn.
We went to Olive Garden
It was my first time although I have heard about it a few times.
Warm inside. Feel so good.
Most of us ordered Zuppe Insalata which is a buffet style of Bread, Salad and Soup.
Look at those big bowls of salad!!
We also ordered 3 types of appetizers.
My favorite was this Bruschetta.
My plate of appetizer.
Mmmm~~~ I was so in love with it. Indeed a great finger food for party! Is it easy to make?
The soup was here. It was a fun way to see other members dipping their bread into the soup and enjoy the soupy bread. I didn't order this as I need rice and non-seafood stuff.
It was amazing how one of our member still able to order pasta with crab after 2 whole days of seafood. Yes, seafood was enough for me during the 2-day Baltimore.
My braised beef with risotto.
The beef was great. However, the risotto was too cheesy and salty for me. But then, I was in good health, so I finished the whole thing, till the last drop of the gravy. Woolala~~~~
Although everyone was quite full, we still ordered 3 desserts.
Yes, we finished all of them.
Gosh... we were so full then.
It was such a great trip. Thanks everybody!!
