Did I mention that it was my intention to cut down on my travels? HA! It may be my intention to travel less, but not to give it up altogether, no. Instead of touring most of the time, I’m down to touring about 50% of the time. I’m still trying to find my perfect balance between home and the road as this is still a work in progress.
So when my agent waved Funchal, Cadiz, Melilla (North African province of Spain) and Cartagena, Spain I said, “YES!” I can’t help myself. I love to travel. Combine that with my other love, performing, and you have one happy camper named Viviana. So off to these exotic lands I went. My performances were very well attended and I got consistent standing ovations (yes, the Leo that resides inside of me believes this is very important).
The most interesting to me was Melilla with it’s Medieval Fortress and cobblestone streets. Despite being a Spanish province, people looked more Arab and they spoke Arab and Spanish and French. What an interesting place it was!
