in US prompts outdoor Fourth of July
While most of the United States was experiencing an extreme heat
wave, INTO North America's San Diego office took advantage of the
beautiful weather by hosting a beach potluck. Putting an historic
feud aside, both Brits and Americans came together to celebrate the
Fourth of July at Fletcher's Cove in Solana Beach on Monday, July
The beachfront picnic table was lined with hamburgers, hotdogs,
potato and green bean salad, guacamole and many, many bags of
chips! The meal only started with the BBQ, as the meats were
followed by sweet treats: cupcake s'mores and tres leches cake (a
Latin American sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk). After
basking in the sun and filling up on food and conversation, the San
Diego group waddled back to the office for some hard work, where
they continued to snack on the leftovers for two days.
