This morning just before the session started I visited the first Cathedral (Catholic) in Baltimore, MD which was walking distance from the Conference site.

After my breakfast I walked to the National Cathedral in Baltimore, MD and spent about 1/2 hour inside and was shown around by a volunteer. After that I walked few blocks to see the Washington Monument and statue of Lafayette.

Then I took the Charmcity Circulator (Purple route) to the conference site.

Visit Baltimore-01

Travel to Baltimore, MD
Saturday, March 05, 2011

I started my travel to Baltimore, MD to attend the 55th Annual Biophysical Society Meeting at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, MD.

I left Tallahassee around mid morning via US Airways and traveled to Charlotte, NC. I was accompanied by another colleague. Our connecting flight to BWI was less than 45 minutes from the time of our TLH flight arrival. However, after rushing to the departing terminal we were told that our flight will not leave on-time anyway due to mechanical problems. We were then put on another flight after 1 1/2 h delay and arrived at BWI late in the afternoon.

We both took the MTA LightRail to the Convention Center and finished our Registration. I went around the Poster session checking out several interesting posters.
