Summer 2007, Charlena traveled to South-East Asia for nine weeks and wrote half of this, her 2nd album, on a small-bodied cheap guitar she purchased for $15.00 US in Laos after a two-day slow boat trip down the Mekong River from Thailand to Laos. She later donated the well-used guitar to a child who couldn’t afford one while teaching English and Guitar to orphans as a volunteer for the last two weeks of her trip.
