There's nothing like being among friends on a sunny cool day, drinking beer and listening to live music. Especially when the beer is served by pretty Mongolian girls struggling to fill out their Bavarian blouses.
This year's 4th of July picnic was held at the International School of Ulaanbaatar, where my kids used to go. It was nice to be back there, and good fun to be drinking beer on school grounds. A marine band from Hawaii belted out excellent tunes, and wholesome games like potato-sack racing kept children and Mormons far away from the keg.
Overall, a perfect day.
