4th of July … in Africa

Happy 4th of July to all my American readers!  I hope you are having a great day of cookouts, swimming, sparklers and fireworks.  And although it’s the 4th of July here in South Africa, it’s just an ordinary Friday.  We are at the University working, typing away on our laptops making charts and writing reports.  But we took a quick break just before lunch for the 5 Americans on the team to show a little love for the good ole’ U S of A.

We didn’t think ahead to pack sparklers or flags, but we made do with the materials we could scrounge up — paper and markers.  Kudos to Julie for having the forethought to bring a red-white-n-blue shirt on the trip.  I tried to pass off my blue necklace as patriotic 🙂
