By 1966, the Felipa Monterro sham had run its course, proven an unsuccessful gambit into the white classical-music milieu of America, and her relationship with Dennis also came to an end. Philippa's tour of Africa was for the most part difficult because she was caught in the crossfire of three coups, in Nigeria, Ghana, and Dahomey. Philippa flew to North Carolina for a concert the following afternoon. In the spring of 1966, Philippa was invited by Henry Cabot Lodge and by the U.S. ambassador to perform for wounded soldiers in South Vietnam. Since she had never visited Vietnam before, she took the invitation and William Loeb engaged her as his paper's foreign correspondent.
