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.

Another dead guy

The last time we saw a dead Liberian guy was Christmas 2005, when the victim of vigilante justice was left on the main road outside the port for 3 days as a warning to other thieves. This Friday a body bobbed alongside our ship for 3 hours until the Seaport Police unceremoniously dragged him to the beach, where he stayed overnight until the UN took him away next morning. The Police think he either died trying to steel from the ships in the port, or whilst trying to loot from the abandoned fishing vessel. Olly
