A day at the fair

Here's a little photo essay from my trip to the always amusing Maryland Renaissance Festival:

It was a beautiful day in the historically-accurate 16th Century English village.
Complete with baby strollers and $4.00 beers.



Despite rumors to the contrary, the technology back then was quite advanced.
And the cell phone really coordinated with this woman's carefully-selected wench ensemble.


Clearly, empanadas and chili were the cuisine of choice in 16th Century England. Mmmmm, delightful!

Ryane: One of the funniest things was that when I went to pay for my admission ticket with AmEx, they actually referred to it as "New World Express."

I should have taken a picture of that!
