    First full day in Nairobi

    November 29, 2018 in Kenya ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Whew! Finally getting in the bed and attempting to get some sleep. It’s almost 3 am here. Somehow I’m still on Chicago time.. but I’m pushing myself to get breakfast in the morning!! I planned to get it earlier today but.. by the time I got out the bed and tried to move around.. my brain was like Nope! Go back to sleep. Lol I slept another 2 hrs. Almost overslept but thankfully I heard housekeeping knocking on the door! Anyway, today was a great day! The city is beautiful! I don’t remember seeing any traffic lights haha. It was an adventure! I coached my first sectional today. Woohoo!
    I’m so happy to be here. My ancestors once lived and thrived in this land. Wow. God is great! Goodnight y’all!

    Paris Airport

    November 28, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    I could spend a lot of time in the Paris airport! There’s so much to do! Video games, Chanel, Gucci, Burberry, etc. It feels really spacious in here as well. The bathrooms were comforting as well! 🙌🏾😂 I had a struggle setting up my universal plug converter.. finally got it figured out with a lady who works in one of the electronic stores here. It’s 9:32 am here and I’m wide awake. My body has no idea what it’s in for. One more 8 hr flight and then I’ll be in Nairobi!!Read more

    Made it to Kenya!

    November 29, 2018 in Kenya ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Yesss! I finally made it to Kenya! (I actually made it about 5hrs ago) but one of the musicians had to wait forever to get her visa so I’m just getting to the hotel. I’m soooo elated to be here!! I’m super excited but also really exhausted. I think my excitement is keeping me awake. The flight went well! Went by fast. So many babies on board.. screaming and crying.. but I totally understand. I coach my first sectional tomorrow sooo goodnight y’all! 🙏🏾♥️Read more

    Finally on the plane!! Headed to Paris. Security line was crazy long.. and boarding the plane took a while as well. The flight will be a little longer than 7 hrs. I’ll try to take a long nap. When I wake up.. it’ll be around 7 am in Paris. I’m already ready to go to sleep. Super excited though!
