Have I mentioned that we get bored frequently here? Well, we also like throwing parties – so whats better than having a 4th of July Independence Day party where half the guests are not even from America! We threw a cookout and invited our German, African, Australian, and American friends to celebrate freedom everywhere. Our fireworks were rained-out, but that just gave us extra time to gather inside and sing all of our National Anthems, in the dark (that’s right, our electricity was out). It was definitely a memorable 4th.
