FLASHBACK: Cameroon Chronicles - Day 2 - Yaounde - Rehearsal & Ambassador's Concert

Updated: Mar 18, 2022

Thankfully the schedule's light today AND coffee is readily available ;-) We start off with a short trip to the Embassy - looks pretty much like all the others... don't know if I've mentioned that there's actually a rule that all new Embassies are on the same floor plan with the same architectural design! We're greeted by Ambassador Robert Jackson who sits down with us to have a nice little chat and welcome us to Yaounde. We'll be meeting his wife later, as we prepare to play at his residence this evening.

A cup of coffee and a pleasant pow-wow with Public Affairs Officer Matt McKeever and we're ready to get back into the swing of things and go meet the local musicians we'll be playing with this evening.

Morning Rehearsal with Zik'Us

We pull into the Ambassador's residence - the nicest one we've seen so far! Full of gorgeous art from around the United States and the world. We're greeted by Babs - MRS. Ambassador, who is such a joy and welcoming hostess! Later she give us a full tour of the Art collection that has been made available to them through the Art in Embassies program - promoting American artists through the Embassies throughout the world. But first, it's time to get down to business with the cats for the rehearsal and sound check.
