Welcome home! I can't wait to hear more about your trip. And what a beautiful, stark picture!

You're not required to say, Talmudically, except in situations where it affects halacha (e.g., if a cohen wanted to marry you, you'd have to say no), and other Jews are not supposed to ask (legally, and also because it's considered rude to ask someone directly). If you're called to the Torah or someone says a blessing for you it will be obvious but other than that there's no need to expose it.

Will be interested to read more. This is something I made a decision about a long time ago that I've seen a reason to revisit; I like this particular category to remain uncomplicated. But the question of worldwide Jewry is truly a fascinating one, just culturally.
