I grew up near Baltimore, Maryland. Some of my earliest memories were in its Inner Harbor. Sharks at the aquarium. Submarines and civil war ear sloops of war. Crabs. Oysters. I recently had the opportunity to return for a medical conference with a side project being an upcoming article for the Miami Herald. Below are some of the snaps I gathered. For three days I studied and stuffed myself on steamed Maryland crabs, quite literally the best food on earth. As the sun set the Domino sugar refinery's sign glowed lava-red. Baltimore is a special place, sweet indeed. It was like going home.
