4th of July Independence Day





That’s the question!!!

This a special date for American people!

When this day was coming, I was thinking about  a big Hot Dog (San Francisco Corn Dog), Big burger and some beers, these were the perfect foods for this day, al least for the big holiday, becasue when you listened to some American people speaking about their 4th of July, they always said the words BBQ, friends and family.


But for me, why a BBQ? Because for me it was the best Potluck in my life, hmmm ok, my second best potluck, (sometimes I felt like using this word made me feel like American person jajaja, so strange!!) Also I learned this word here, at the school, last May, when EC has having its birthday, everybody brought the most representative food of his country, it was an amazing day.


Otherwise,  this day I went to my friend´s house and also I went there with some other friends to the best Potluck in San francico, we shared the best food that we had ever eaten before, a traditional sourdough bread from San Francisco, lasagna, vegetables and avocado salad, rice with vegetables, roast chicken, burgers, corn dogs, red and white wine and the best dessert for me, plumb pie with ice cream.

Everybody that went to the 4th of July at my friend´s house were from different countries, and was an amazing experience. We met Mexicans, Canadians, Brazilians, French and American people, of course.


At night we went together to the Ferry Building (near the bay) to see an amazing and fantastic Fireworks show. The day was perfect for me, unforgettable day, always on my mind. It was the real American culture.


This is America! Everybody brought the best from their native countries to share it with us.
