A Weekend

It was your typical long weekend, I suppose.

We paid a visit to the Los Angeles Equestrian Center with friends and watched horses jump over things. After this, Sarah needed a hamburger, so went to one of our favorite places in Los Feliz village and bought her some meat.

A day later, our travels took us to Orange County where Sarah and her bellydancing trio wiggled and shimmied at a Viet Namese fundraising event - all I could make out is that this was benefitting a village back home - at the auditorium of the Santa Ana High School. Before they came out, I sat through more than an hour of pop songs and power ballads all in Viet Namese and applauded announcements I did not comprehend.

You know, a typical weekend.

On the world stage, Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia, and was immediately recognized by the United States. Fidel Castro resigned as President of Cuba, ending 49 years of rule there. Pakistan held its elections, which had been postponed following the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, and to everyone's surprise the ruling party acknowledged defeat.

Again - just your average run-of-the-mill weekend.
