one month ago, I was in Africa...

YES! I was in Nigeria for a couple of weeks. And it's taken me a month to settle back in and finally organize my trip a bit...

I decided that the blog was a wee bit too personal for here, but let's just say that the trip was unforgettable, beautiful, and so significant for me. I can't wait to be back there again... and soon!!

And for those of you in Lagos who came to the show at the Intercontinental Hotel THANK YOU SO much for your support and for warmth. I felt so welcomed, I was so overjoyed to share my music with you, and I can't wait to do it again.

Meanwhile, here are some of my favorite photos from the trip, in no particular order...
