Silvia (right), 13, plays fife (a small flute) in a fife and drum corps, a traditional American music formation. 

Fife and drum corps go back to the Revolutionary War, when America became independent from Great Britain. In this video , the National Fife & Drum Corps plays at the White House for the visit of the British Prime Minister, Michael Cameron. Do you think he appreciated the souvenir of a war his country lost?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  Scotland and INdependence

   In September, Scotland is having a referendum: Scottish people can vote for independence, or to stay in the United Kingdom. But independent or in the Union, Scotland will stay in the Commonwealth, and Queen Elizabeth will still be the Head of State. Here are photos of two typical things to see in Scotland: a man playing bagpipes, and a (haunted?) castle! Below is the complete list of all 53 countries in the Commonwealth, by continent.
