4th of July Party at the Embassy

For all the excitement I generated about going to the invitation only party at the US Embassy, I didn't have a good time...inspite of the hundreds in attendance including a who's who's of the diplomatic community in Azerbaijan and the fab Azeris who are well connected and have to bee seen....it was a bust for me. But then again fortunately, my time here in the country has strengthen my resolve never get too excited (except to fly home)....I think it's because I really don't have a community here...as I've stated before...I'm kinda the exception...not part of a large private corporation like BP, yes, they have a huge presence here, I don't work for some NGO type agency...UN, NATO, etc. etc..and I don't work for the US State Dept...so I'm out there on a limb....and clearly the community of US citizens is small enough that it can be like mini-clans...bummer...but damn the potato chips (that I didn't pay $5) for were really tasty...
