AGU in America 2006

Happy Fourth of July!

Today is Independence Day, aka the Fourth of July. On the street where I live, neighborhood parents and kids got together for a little parade, complete with red, white, and blue decorations, "tattoos," streamers, leis and even doughnuts. The kids were so cute! I wish you could have seen them. Here are a few snapshots to give you an idea of what it all looked like. Click on any picture to enlarge it. (You can see my house in the background of the second picture.)

Like many other Americans, we will celebrate the Fourth of July with a cookout at some friends' home. Afterwards, we will watch the local fireworks display. You can watch some fireworks too, by clicking on the Fourth of July link in the sidebar!

Thanks to my neighbor, JoAnn Schimke, for sharing her photos.

  • Hello, Yuiko, and welcome to our AGU in America blog! Will your trip to Maryland be your first trip outside of Japan, or have you traveled abroad before?

  • I have been to Europe, but I have never been to either Singapore or Hawaii. You must tell me about it when you come! I wonder where the other AGU in America participants have traveled.
