Day 26 | Bonus Post
Good midnight Mi Gente. It’s with a lot of pride that I tell you that the first real freedom is happening right now.
When I was in Portugal, I was talking to my brother from another mother Mr David Hernandez, an amazing promoter of kizomba from New York. We hadn’t seen each other for a while and I promised I would give him the first dates that I had. And like I promised my brother, the promise is being honored today. I just left Kitaba, jumped on the bus 🚌 , no divas, on my way to New York City to visit my brother from another mother. Tomorrow, I’m gonna give 3 classes, you already know semba, kizomba and kuduro at Solas and then dance the night with my American brothers and sisters to the sounds of DJ P-Lo and DJ Afrodeshak. Tomorrow your boy Dr Kizomba is gonna fill that place with all my energy 💥. This is my first trip to the United States since #stuckinlisbon (60 days), #stuckincanada (132 days), #freedom (65 days), and #soberdays (25 days and counting!). That’s 282 days. That’s a lot of days. A lot of days without real freedom.
It’s been rough, my people. But good things come from those who wait. I wanna see all my folks supporting your boy Dr Kizomba at this event. No bull, no bias, we gonna have some fun! Because I am ready to partyyyyyy!!!! 🎉 David, tell the bartender to keep my carrot juice on deck. 🥕🥤
Mi Gente, you already know, your boy is a travel blogger now 👨🏿💻. Times Square, Central Park, put your suggestions of where I should go in the comments 👇.
Mi Gente, your boy is happy.
