Confession: I forgot it was Memorial Day until someone in St. Louis reminded me during a conference call on Friday. I’m surprised at how hard it is to keep track of those kind of things over here. I managed to (unintentionally) have a very American week. Let’s pretend it’s because I was celebrating from afar…
- Wednesday: Hot dogs and hula hoops
- Friday: Visitors from Nestlé Purina in St. Louis inspired a dinner party with fellow US expats
- Saturday: Burgers at the best burger place in the area (“Holy Cow”) and X-Men in 3D
- Sunday: Another cookout with American friends
I’m grateful for my friends who serve our country. Happy Memorial Day from one proud American living half a world away!
