International Day 2014

Last Friday is one of the highlights of living here and my husband working at the military base here.  Every year they do a International Day event.  People from the different countries that work here can do a booth with food, drinks, activities or whatever else they want to do that shows people what their country is all about.  Not all countries participate in this but most do which is always fun.

Time to set up our American booth. Lots of red, white and blue!

American soda's were a hit.  Not sure if they were a hit because of the heat or the taste?

My favorite food at the whole event...Slovakian dumpling like things!  I really think we need to move to Slovakia just so I can eat this everyday.
