No place like CERN for the holidays

There are definitely fewer Americans around CERN today but some of us were determined to celebrate Thanksgiving.We had a celebration on Thursday with mostly ALICE people but two students from ATLAS, one detector guru who has worked with all of the LHC experiments, and one American theorist friend who came from Frankfurt for the privilege of eating turkey.  It’s a great chance to share American culture and an excuse to have a party.  17 people (all physicists), an 8.5 kg turkey, and 10 kg of potatoes.

We got a turkey – special ordered from a butcher – and we found  butternut squash in the market.  Here are some tips on how to find American foods around CERN – interesting to see what people miss when they’re away from home.  Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!
