But as the Day falls on a Tuesday it is more practical for all those who could accompany us to meet on Sunday the 16th. As in previous years, we will meet at the Parque Juan Carlos I - at the site where the American Embassy planted 10 red oaks brought from the US on the 10th anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers."

Yukata! That’s the traditional Japanese summer get-up. It’s kimono but more casual. Less elaborate. It makes for great comfort. And Japanese outfitters say it makes women look particularly beautiful.
