Masjid Al-Falaah 

While I was hiking on Philadelphia Road in Abingdon, I passed a church group holding selling plates of food at a cookout. I was a might peckish after walking from Havre de Grace, so I stopped in to fill up my belly (and my book.) The church group was a Masjid (mosque) Al-Falaah. I chipped in for a hot meal and a can of Coke, introduced myself and explained I was going to meet President Obama. Everyone there was welcoming and I collected some pretty good messages. One man was a registered Republican who canvassed for Obama in '08, another man operated a carpet company in New Jersey and offered me a place to stay next time I came through. The teenagers in the background, who were talking about applying to colleges, "spread their culture through funny videos" and invited President Obama to check them out (www.youtube.com/rwnlpwnl)
