With the American embassy essentially on lockdown, we had to come up with
our own way to celebrate the Fourth of July. We managed to put together an impromptu potluck dinner consisting of “American” food. Ironically the woman who organized this (Laura) is French. The meal lacked alcohol but included potato salad, deviled eggs, watermelon, and of course a family sized KFC meal (freedom fries included). The night was capped off with a screening of “Team America: World Police”, because what would independence day be without a little misguided humor and bigotry?
