I am so jazzed. Many of you may remember I got aced out of working in Greece

this summer at a refugee camp. I was put on the no fly list by trump and also had my naturalization of citizenship challenged. I won both of those and am free to travel.

I will be leaving in two weeks for NYC, Keflavik Iceland, Oslo Norway, Frankfurt am Main Germany (where I will sing for Christmas midnight Mass) Dubai, Assmara Senafe Eritrea, the Dhalek Islands in the Red Sea, Addis Ababa Ethiopia, Abidjan Ivory Coast and Philadelphia. I am singing for national funeral at an Eritrean Orthodox Church and will be touring throughout Eritrea. I need to pinch myself. I am so excited!

6. Sounds exciting!

Have fun! And be careful! Lots of exclamation points! I have read things about Dubai that make me want to say be ESPECIALLY careful there, but I ain't your mama so I'll just say, WOW that sounds like a grand time and I'm as green with da envy as can be. Send us updates!

19. I will admit...

I had to look up Eritrea. I started here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eritrea
i ended up here:
https://www.theguardian.com/world/eritrea
Truly i feel under educated right now. Are you singing in a choir? My daughter is in an a cappella group... i've always loved music that included only the human voice. Anyway, cheers, again, Have Fun! Again, keep us updated!

22. Until I met my dear friend who passed away

(he grew up in Eritrea the child of Presbyterian missonaries) I was sure where it was either.

7. We visited Iceland and Oslo this past spring

Beautiful places. Be sure to go to the Vigeland Park in Oslo. Incredible sculptures by one artist in bronze and stone. If you have an opportunity to take the rail trip from Oslo to Bergen, I recommend it highly. You start at sea level and go up above the tree line and past beautiful glaciers.

The people were delightful. Safe Travels.

This administration does not care about what it is doing to people who want to visit the world and help those in need. I hope you have a lot of fun abroad!

24. Iceland is amazing, I was there last month

there's natural beauty everywhere.

Glad you got your travel freedom back. Do you have more details of your story posted somewhere? I'm curious about what happened and how. I was born and raised in America but my citizenship is challenged daily. I'm sure Trump's people will find a way to deport me somewhere.
