July 4th

I skipped a really great July 4th CouchSurfing party in Bonn to celebrate Independence Day with one of my favourite ex-pats and some Germans.

Amanda had the idea to make this flag cake. I baked a yellow cake (vegan, of course) with sprinkles on the inside!! You know, like what you get when you're five? Amanda got soywhip, blueberries and strawberries from the store and then the magic happened.

Flag cake!

Amanda also had the idea from her Auburn days to pour vodka into a watermelon. You don't taste the vodka, but you do taste the nastiness that is watermelon.

Me and my friends out on Timo's balcony.

They found sliced cheese at the store, decided it looked more like playing cards than food and turned it into cards, however crudely.

The whole shibang. note the ketchup/mustard tube mix, american buns, tons of booze. also, quinoa salad. not pictured: tofu dogs.

That's great! I didn't know they had watermelons there. Here in the US of A we have seedless melons. :-) They'll probably think of some way to grow them with vodka already in, too.
