We're headed there for a bat mitzvah. My old stomping grounds, sort of. When I lived in Severn, we really only went into Bawlmer for stereo components. Annapolis & D.C. were the cities, also Silver Springs for their excellent health food store. Not surprisingly, given that I easily get lost in the neighborhood where I've lived for 40 years, I never learned my way around Maryland well at all.

This will surprise people who know how connected I feel to the Midwest, but at age 19 I was so startled & appalled to be considered a hick for being from South Dakota that for a couple of years I claimed to be from Maryland.
