I have now spent the Fourth of July in Oxford, England, New York City,
the middle of the woods in a cabin with a bunch of kids, and Lima, Peru.
We are Ammurican! Red & White & Blue, Coca-Cola, Beer and MEAT!
(that's a piece of chicken)
I Love You, good ol' USA! Nothing like living abroad to make you love your home country...
And as we toasted during our makeshift 4th of July party and sing-a-long....
To the USA!
To flushing your toilet paper!
To drinking tap water!
To not having security guards hit on you!
To thrift stores!
To second hand book stores!
To knock-knock jokes!
(this managed to waylay us into a lesson of knock-knock jokes to one of our Peruvian friends)
"To Harry Potter!"
"thats from England!"
"Yeah...but I like it!"
(putting old enmities aside this Fourth...)
I miss you, America. See you soon.
