Happy 4th of July!!!

Happy American Independence Day, everyone!

The Usa.gov website describes today as ‘a day of picnics and patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the American flag.’ In London however, not so much! I’ve been looking for Independence Day celebrations, and whereas the Canadians occupied all of Trafalgar Square on Friday so tons of happy folk could meet Mounties, drop pucks and generally celebrate Canada Day,  down at the American Embassy in Grosvenor Square today the biggest thing that is happening is an unveiling of a statue of Ronald Reagan. Hmmmmm…. Even the British sites like timeout.com are being berrated by readers for not having celebrations to advertise!  Ah well, the sun is out, our skins are glowing, there are no strikes AND there is still lots to do in London today! Stuck for ideas? Check out www.alllinlondon.co.uk and you’re bound to find something fun to do. (If I had the day off work I’d get down to the South Bank and enjoy the Thames beach!). Have fun, and Happy 4th July!
