12 - Greek 412 - Greek 4 12 - Greek 312 - Greek 3 I taught a class of "Getting to Know Your Nikon DSLR" class today at Frederick Community College, and afterwards, I was famished.  My plan for walking today was to check out the Greek Festival on W. 7th Street, so that's where I headed first.
 
12 - Greek 112 - Greek 1 12 - Greek 212 - Greek 2Little Free Library in the neighborhood 12 - Greek 512 - Greek 5 Greek music filled the air; the rain had stopped, and there was a small but steady stream of people entering the church parking lot to visit the food options:  pastries, gyros, salads, rice pudding, and all sorts of traditional fare like keftedes (Greek meatballs), stuffed grape leaves, and spanakopita.  I bought a platter, and the serving size was enough for three people.  One man sitting near me while I was eating said, "Who would have thought you could get food like this right here in Frederick?"  I had to agree -- it did feel like a true cultural experience.
 
12 - Greek 612 - Greek 6 After my meal, I walked around this section of town.  When I saw a gate to Hood College, I felt disoriented.  I had always approached Hood from Rosemont Avenue, and now I was seeing Hood's campus butted up against the hospital grounds.  I wandered down streets like Magnolia, Belmont, Culler, and Fairview, lined with neatly kept homes and mature trees.  There was a park, which I later learned is the Max Kehne Memorial Park.  A massive oak anchored one of its corners.
 
It was nice to explore a new section of town today where I had never been.  I need to explore more in this area.
