November 2022, I went to Africa. It was probably one of the most anticipated excursions, I’ve ever embarked on. I really didn’t know what to expect but I knew it would be awesome. The flight was 10 hours, which was pretty much unbearable, however it was probably the smoothest flight I’ve encountered, and I’ve flown a lot; very smooth soaring. When we landed, the Africans greeted us with welcome home. I should have anticipated things to come but I didn’t. Walking into a foreign space and hearing welcome home was jarring especially for myself, being a descendent of enslaved Africans.
