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.

Land Rover break-in

Just before dawn this morning, and not more than 50 metres from the ship, two swimmers armed with razor-sharp machetes climbed onto our dock and broke into our Land Rover by pushing in a window. They then tried to steal boxes of soap that were inside, which were destined for distribution to prisoners in Monrovia Central Prison, but were disturbed and swam away empty handed. Ironically, if they get caught and survive local vigilante justice, they will end up in prison using the very soap they tried to steel. Olly
