I have been to most Caribean Islands, Europe, China, and Bali. Yet I have not gone back home. I am torn between South Africa, Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria. Why you ask? Well…South Africa is where Nelson Mendela was from. I want to experience the history of the remnants of Aparthied, the culture and the people. I know of friends that traveled to South Africa and the videos they shared were amazing.
Ghana is, according to Alex Haley, where most African-American ancestry lies. I only know one word in Guinea which is “wang-gai” which means “let’s go”. Also, I would love to hear from the guru the true meaning of the kente cloth.
Kenya, before President Obama became Commander in Chief, because I met a family, who I send assistance to when I can. I speak a little Swahili, thanks to my brother Ben Bella. I would love to meet them in person AND then say ” I have been to the country where the father of the First Black President comes from.
And last but not least: NIGERIA. That’s where my ancestors are from by way of the Bahamas. Most Nigerians I meet think I am Nigerian! And when I tell them I am not, they say it’s in your blood line. Wel after the family tree research (paternal) I now know that to be true.
So where do I travel to first? I’ll just close my eyes, spin the globe and point! Hey, that’s how I ended up in Bali this year.
So,where do you want to go? Reply and let me know. Maybe I’ve been there!
And maybe I will unveil more of me!
