I spent more time in Lancaster, Ohio with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble, but somehow accumulated more photos during my brief visit to Olney, Illinois. I’m not sure how I managed to do that, considering I was only there for one full day and two nights!  Olney is known for their white squirrel, hence a few images of the white squirrel in action are included in this blog (images of all white squirrels are courtesy: Julia Chacón).

The beautiful Meagan.

I wish I had performance images of Martin Gaxiola to share.  It’s unfortunate that I don’t since he’s such an AMAZING dancer & performer.

Next stop is Chicago!!!

I performed with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble in Lancaster, Ohio on January 22, 2012. It had been a week since I hadn’t seen the sun.  As a resident of Phoenix, Arizona, I’m fortunate to see the sun most of the year.  It’s an absolutely wonderful way to live.  So you can image my enthusiasm when the sun peeked out while traveling to Lancaster.

The drive to Lancaster, Ohio.  The sun is out!!!!

Brief stop for food before getting on the road again.  During this tour I think we accumulated 1700 miles of driving.  Sounds like fun….

I spent a few days in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble for a concert held on January 19, 2012.  I had the opportunity to enjoy the snow!  Was it COLD!!!! Wellsboro is a cute town with a population of about 3300, although it did seem much larger to me.  Below are some images of my time there.

Enjoying the COOL weather!

On our way to the venue. Martin and Casey.

I love technology.  I normally carry my camera with me to capture images of my travels while on tour, but during this trip the camera was accidentally left at home… Thank goodness for cell phones!  I was on tour with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble led by flamenco guitarist, Chris Burton Jácome.  During January I visited and performed in cities that I had never been to prior. Here are a few snapshots of my time in Culpeper, Virginia for our January 17th performance.
