Fourth of July in Tokyo

No fireworks. No BBQs. Don't expect any Americana!

It was just like any other day except:
  • One of the other American secondees wore American flag socks to work.
  • We made a special effort to go to a burger place for lunch.
  • The firm planned a beach party for the summer associates, but it was cancelled due to rain.
Really, the American flag socks were the best part! I'm most homesick on American holidays like this one. There are so many pictures on Facebook and Instagram of my friends with their spouses and kids at the beach or pool or park or even just the backyard. It makes me happy to see everyone together. I just wish I could be a part of it!
