July 4th, 2004

July 4th. Nepal. 2004.

Hot. Sweaty. Embassy.

Doritos. Dr Pepper. Beef brought in by way of jet.

Passports. "Scandalous" tank tops. English all around.

Elephant rides. Creepy Miami Vice Ambassador. National anthem sung in operatic form.....

Who were we kidding?

We were just there to mingle with the marines.

I came here by way of Annie & I just had to comment about this one. I lived in Lusaka, Zambia for a while & one of the highlights was going to the Marine base to watch movies. I actually got invited their ball by a cute little Michigander who had a preacher for a mother. Wonder what he's up to now? That was 22 years ago - boy how time flies!

Aww that was such a fun day! Miss you friend! Can't believe we live on the same side of the US and I still saw Jessica before I saw you!!!
