Russian 4th of July [2011 throwback]

Two years ago I spent the 4th of July in Russia.  I posted a few photos after the event, but I resurrected a couple more that I recently found and really enjoyed.  Having been out of the U.S. for months at this point, I decided to name the 4th of July, “America Day”… in which I tried to do classic American things, but in Russia.  Finding a watermelon wasn’t hard.  Coca-cola wasn’t difficult either, thanks to globalization.  And so we grabbed the two and headed out to the nearest lake to go swimming.  I put on the reddest lipstick I could find and a blue swimsuit and went out to celebrate America, from half way around the world.  The hardest part was BBQ.  Russians love their BBQ, but is nothing like the stuff I get home in Texas.  However, smoked meat covered with onions and dill had to suffice.  Although attempting to have the most American day I could manage, I still found myself eating dill and onions.  Somethings are the same, and somethings you just can’t escape.
