Sierra Leone

Hey everybody!

Wow. What a wacky two months! Premiering a new show in Italy, street performing in London, England, and going to Sierra Leone to teach workshops in circus to ex-combatants. Where to start?
Suffice to say I had quite the adventure in West Africa and despite experiencing some amazing sketchiness, I would totally go back in a heartbeat. I even managed to pull off a super short street show in Freetown (that one went out to my friend Lee Nelson). I will probably recount that adventure on for him later on.

I rolled in the night before last and hit the ground running, with a performance in Zero Gravity's 5oth Lunacy Cabaret last night, showing off a bit from the new show. Suffice to say, I'm super tired.

So.. Sierra Leone was a big long adventure. Any ideas of how you wanna read about it? I was thinking either a synopsis each of Freetown and Koidu, or one long post, or several posts of some of the more hilariously unbelieveable stories. What say you, dear readers?

On a side note, while I was away, I received the most wonderful birthday gift: Ask A Busker now has it's very own home on the internet! All your burning questions are answered now on the site, conveniently, you can email directly from the site! Previous topics discussed are archived in a really organized fashion, too. Many many thanks go out to my amazing partner, Matthew, for making it happen! I rarely talk about my personal life here, but, I just want to say that I am so grateful to have such a wonderful and supportive partner, and it makes coming home all the more sweeter! :)

Check out the new "Ask a Busker" website!
