5.17am, Saturday 21st January,South President Street, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Still not quite into the time zone, but it will get an hour better each day now – by about Monday I should be good as gold. I just looked outside, and there’s a light snow flurry, so perhaps winter proper has finally arrived in Baltimore – it’s been unusually mild until now. So here’s what it looks like from my room right now. The hotel sits on the edge of Little Italy and the old jar outside neighborhood of Fells Point, and this is looking back across Inner Harbour towards the city. Hopefully it won’t get too heavy as we’re scheduled to head back down to Washington DC this morning for couple of events. I’ll just go make some coffee and I’ll be back with a report on our first official ” Yalumba in America” day for this trip – almost in the same place as Obama at the same time and everything!
