Liechtenstein Celebrates Its 300th Anniversary

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Liechtenstein had its 300th anniversary this year. The small European country has about 38,000 residents. For its big national holiday yesterday, Prince Hans-Adam II had a garden party at the castle, and lucky Liechtensteiners celebrated with their head of state. A photo shows the prince with a beer in each hand. One partygoer told Reuters it's not so unusual to be this close to the monarchy - said, quote, "we are one big family here."
