Tomorrow Ken and Kurt will kiss the wives and head to BNA (Nashville International Airport) to start the 3 continent jaunt to West Africa. Three planes, four legs to the flight path, to meet up with Serges and the Festi Gospel Jam folks (Check them out on Facebook) The How-Did-We-Get-Here is a bit of story but one part I thought everyone might like to see is about the Visas to get into Cameroon.
