A U.S. diplomat I worked for in Berlin years ago is currently stationed in the U.S. Embassy in Turkey, and invited me to the U.S. Independence Day Party at US Ambassador Francis Ricciardone’s residence. Several hundred people from Ankara’s diplomatic community attended this swanky affair to celebrate our nation’s 237th birthday, including the New Orleans Jazz Band who swung by the party to perform as part of their tour throughout Europe.  I was both lucky/unlucky to stand right next to the media section of the crowd, but did manage to snap a few photos. Hope your Independence Day celebrations went well!
