Happy American Independence Day
For some reason, every Fourth of July weekend, I am unable to go to the Embassy cookout, but I am hoping to grill burgers outdoors myself this year. If only we could get decent corn on the cob in Astana, I’d be happy. I am pleased that this year they made the 4th a day off, even if everyone has to work Saturday and Sunday. The day off may have something to do with some small local holiday like the Day of Astana or some guy’s birthday party. But I prefer to pretend that it’s for Independence Day.
