Have you ever seen the following image?
Boticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” c. 1480; Uffizi Gallery, Florence, Italy
I’m sure you have, probably in a textbook or on the Internet or a poster in a cafe.
But what would you do if you had the chance to see this masterpiece in person?
If you’re a nerd like me, you’d rush to see it. So that’s what my friends and I did while we were in Florence one weekend (among other things).
I have to admit that it wasn’t until recently that I truly started to take advantage of the multitude of activities and attractions Baltimore offers…
I have been trying to get off campus and find out for myself if the phrase that many of the benches in the city have engraved on them, “Baltimore: Greatest City in America,” is true.
Now that the warm weather is *officially* here, it seems like the perfect time to do some exploring before I am completely swamped with final exams and end of semester commitments and work.
