Well, as many of you know, Independence Day is my favorite holiday of the year. So, needless to say, I missed it being 8000 miles from America. However, I was furthermore saddened because I was one of two Americans at the school here and the other was gone, so I celebrated America alone. I watched fireworks on Youtube, drank a Coca-Cola, and went to bed. I cannot say it was the best Fourth of July ever.
However, I am in a sincerely pleasant mood, since I am healthy and able to run again. Thursday is a Tanzanian holiday, Sikukuu ya Wafanyakazi (Laborer's Day). A few of us will celebrate by taking the afternoon off of class, heading into town for dinner, and trying to find a celebration somewhere. It should be fun whatever we do.
