What do a Kiwi, an Italian, some Canadians, a Northern Irishman, some English and an Estonian have in common?
Don’t worry, this isn’t a dirty joke. The answer is an undying love for the good ol’ USA and a desire to celebrate it in style with their favorite American friend.
Maybe that’s a joke, too. But in any case, we gathered and ate and drank!
I made cornbread that was gone almost immediately. My American friend Melizza made amazing chocolate chip cookies, and they were gone before I took a picture.
I did, however, get a picture of the bread she made.
And that completes the food photos! I can’t believe I took no photos of the food other than this. We also had burgers, lots of mixed drinks, and three different salads.
Although we had to celebrate a bit early I’m really glad I decided to do something this year rather than feel like I’m missing out while all my friends back home have cook outs and parties.
These are my two American friends. I don’t now why I look so crazy here.
Most of the people who came were people from work. I don’t think I’ll ever again be lucky enough to work with such cool people.
I hope everyone here had a fun “Fourth of July” and that all my friends back home have a fun one in a couple weeks!
