Happy Fourth of July, everyone! Well, technically, our little party took place on the second of July, but you get the idea. First up: the United States Marine Corps. This part always gets the Americans in the crowd choked up a bit.
There were games, and popcorn machines, and grilled hot dogs, and even a few Palestinian break dancers. But the highlight of the afternoon had to be the dunk tank. Here you see our very own RSO, taking his turn in the tank. And the line to dunk him! For some reason, the line was quite long. He did a great job in there, even though he had to be freezing.
And that was that! After the fireworks, the zillion or so guests departed, because the next day was Sunday, which is, of course, a regular work day in Jordan.
Tomorrow is the official celebration. It should be a bit stuffier - not a dunk tank in sight, I'd bet.
