In the evening kaffirlimeleaf and I went to Redbones where I had ribs for the first time - not surprisingly I had to leave some, but they were really tasty.
Of course, today is Independence Day in America and most people have the day off. Since I was in one of the main cities connected with the Revolution, I was able to see a unique ceremony. I was one of the crowd below the balcony of the Old State House, where the current captain of the Ancient and Honored Company of Artillery read the Declaration of Independence, which is a somewhat ironic document once you get past the famous opening section. There was a small parade of police officers, sailors, the Ancient Artillery and a re-enactment society, the Middlesex Volunteers and everyone was enjoying themselves. Now I'm off to a 4th of July party - although quite a restrained one, I believe!
