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.

One year in Liberia

One year ago today I left Sally and the kids in the UK and flew to Liberia on my own to prepare for their arrival three weeks later. I felt very small and alone as I looked out of the aeroplane over the thick green Liberian forest. My ride from the airport was nearly two hours late collecting me, and as I stood waiting for him and fighting off beggars, the skies opened and I got soaking wet. Thus began the loneliest three weeks of my life, in the poorest country in the world. How things changed for the better when we were reunited as a family three weeks later! Olly
