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.

A party with a difference


Our very good friend Keith had a birthday party with a difference on Saturday, to which he invited his usual friends plus a number of disabled people who beg outside the supermarkets here in Monrovia. What a great gesture of love! Along came several amputees who lost arms and legs in the war, and several blind men with their young sons acting as guides. It was great to chat to them, and heartbraking to hear their terrible stories of injury. Pictured is Sally with a young father who lost his arm and both eyes when a grenade he was holding exploded in his hand. Olly
