10月23日周六霍普金斯CSSA组织游览巴尔的摩市区。MtVernon是巴尔的摩最古老的街区之一,被评定为美国国家历史地标和巴尔的摩市文化特区。MtVernon这个名字来源于美国第一任总统乔治华盛顿的家乡。MtVernon不但历史文化氛围浓郁,附近还有相当多格式风味的餐厅,有常见的意大利、美国、法国、日本餐厅,甚至连阿富汗、埃塞俄比亚、土耳其餐厅都有。

当天参加该活动共有25人。在品尝完独具特色的尼泊尔自助午餐后,我们步行到达WashingtonMonument。途中经过美国历史最悠久的天主教大教堂,The Baltimore Basilica。WashingtonMonument位于霍普金斯大学附属的Peabody Institute对面。PeabodyInstitute是与纽约茱莉亚音乐学院齐名的全球知名的音乐学院之一。

1815年开始建立在Mt Vernon的Washington Monument是全美国首个华盛顿纪念碑。该纪念碑的设计者RobertMills后来也在华盛顿DC建造了华盛顿纪念碑。由于安全原因,MtVernon纪念碑在今年六月起停止对公众开放以进行修护工作。同学们在Washington Monument前面合影留念后参观了WaltersArt Museum。

Walters Art Museum是巴尔的摩两大公立美术馆之一。世界级的丰富馆藏跨越了二十多个世纪,从古埃及、古希腊、古罗马、古中国到中世纪、文艺复兴及十九世纪末期的绘画和艺术品应有尽有。当天除了有常规展览以外还免费开放了特别展览WalterWick: Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic以及各式各样的游戏和表演活动。

Do you know that Baltimore is one of the American cities with the longest history, or have you ever thought about exploring the places of interest other than Inner Harbor in Baltimore?  The cool autumn weather provides us a fantastic opportunity to do so!   The Hopkins CSSA is organizing another outdoor activity – this time we will visit one of Baltimore’s own resorts, Mt. Vernon, on the coming Saturday, October 16, 2010.

We will first have lunch buffet at the Lumbini Restaurant (322 N. Charles St), an exotic place providing tasty Indian/Nepali meals. After the lunch, we will start to tour the Walters Art Museum (600 N. Charles St), the Peabody institute and the surrounding areas. The buffet lunch costs about $10 (plus tips and tax) per person and the museum admission is free, so do not forget to bring cash with you.  We will meet at the Lumbini at about 12:30PM.  However, if you would like to join us for the tour part only, you  can meet the group at 2:00PM at the Lumbini.

You can take the JHU shuttle that leaves Homewood at 12:00 PM or the one that leaves JHMI at 12:30 PM, get off at the Peabody stop, walk for two blocks to the south on N. Charles St.

Hopkins CSSA组织这次活动除了提供大家一个认识新朋友的机会外也希望让大家有机会了解巴尔的摩的历史文化。我们计划10月16日周六中午12点半在Lumbini餐厅集合,品尝特色的尼泊尔自助餐。大家可以搭乘学校校车在Peabody站下车然后在Charles St上往南走两三个路口到达(地址是322 N Charles St)。饭后我们计划参观Walters Art Musuem以及周边地区。Mt Vernon是巴尔的摩最古老的街区之一,被评定为美国国家历史地标和巴尔的摩市文化特区。Mt Vernon这个名字来源于美国第一任总统乔治华盛顿的家乡。1815年开始建立在Mt Vernon的Washington Monument是全美国首个华盛顿纪念碑。位于Mt Vernon中心的Walters Art Museum是巴尔的摩两大公立美术馆之一。世界级的丰富馆藏跨越了二十多个世纪,从古埃及、古希腊、古罗马、古中国到中世纪、文艺复兴及十九世纪末期的绘画和艺术品应有尽有。免费参观。大家还可以在游客服务台租借语音导览,拿到外面收听了解Mt Vernon的历史与文化。
