Another 3 Day Weekend, Memorial Day

Another 3 day weekend begins, the weather is beautiful.  Lest we forget why the long weekend, Memorial Day.  There will be a ceremony at the British cemetary on Monday honoring the soldiers and sailors buried there.  Little trivia, there are German sailors buried there from the Graf Spree.
The Graf Spree is sunk right here in the River Plate, the superstructure is still visible on clear days.
Some information.

Bad news today as 2 Americans were killed in the Green Zone.  Probably not much news in itself except that it appears that one of the Americans was shot in a vehicle, not good.  I didn't realize while I was there an American was kidnapped from the Green Zone.  I knew quite a bit of insider information and I didn't know that.
