I was in Peru and they don't really celebrate the day of the US independence.
So I didn't get my fireworks this year.
Actually, the extent of it was Adam saying to me while laying in our tent, "Hey dude, it's the 4th of July."
I mumbled from within my sleeping bag, "Go America." Then we didn't say another word and just went to sleep.
However, I saw something better than fireworks. I saw what is beyond the fireworks every time we look up in amazement at them.
More than I have ever seen.
I took a picture but it turned out to be an awfully wimpy representation.
So just go look for yourself sometime.
I highly recommend a lay down and look up get-away.
