Celebrating the 4th of July, German-Style

He had me fooled again, that wiley fiancé of mine.

"Oh, we won't do anything for the 4th of July. There's nothing going on in Hamburg anyway."

"Sorry Babe, I checked and I couldn't find a party for us to go to."

"We'll spend it in the U.S. sometime, don't you worry."

And then, after his gym session, he came home. I heard a sudden burst of The Star-Spangled Banner blaring in the living room. He called me to come down.

And there were all forms of American naughtiness! None of which I even knew you could buy here in Germany! Three giant deep dish pizzas (one of them simply called "Texas," which I find particularly hilarious)! Oreos for dessert! Pomegranate Arizona iced tea! 

And of course, perhaps the most American thing of all ........

Diet Dr. Pepper.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!!!

Love,
Joëlle
