This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

More disturbances


Today there has been more disturbances in the city, around the Mamba Point offices of the UN Department of Programs, which gives out grants and finances projects for the rebuilding of Liberia. Why the crowd targeted the UNDP remains a mystery to me, since it is here to help the Liberians - I guess it is a soft target without armed guards compared to the many Liberian government buildings that are heavily guarded by UN soldiers. And so the rainy season of discontent continues. Photo of the heavy UN armed presence currently around the Liberian Ministry of Defence, not far from the UNDP buildings. Olly
