Double yay for Freedom

The 4th of July has come, and gone, and it was a lot of fun!

Although the Philppines has a 4th of July, just like every other country in world, it doesn't celebrate it like all of America does! Luckily, a bunch of us volunteers were able to get together for a BBQ. It was great to get to see people that I haven't seen for a couple of months, and eat some potato salad... yum! We got to swim, talk, some played football, and others (yeah, I'm in this category!) took a nap.

A cool fact, though July 4th isn't a huge thing in the Philippines, it is a holiday here. It's known at Filipino-American Friendship Day because it's when the Philippines gained it's indepence after being an American territory.
