Independence Day

Jorge & Monica, from Bogota, Colombia, spent a night with us on their way through L.A. to Australia. We spent the 4th of July with them driving around the Palo Verde Peninsula and then down to Seal Beach. We arrived at the Korean Freedom Bell around 11:00Am to discover they were having a 4th of July celebration. So we stayed and heard some speeches (in both languages), saw a flag folding ceremony (the words that go along with this are amazing, I'd never heard them before) and then heard the bell rung 14+ times.
