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.

Pre-war Liberia

I'm fascinated by what Liberia used to be like before the war - everywhere I look there are remains of once-great things. Does anyone out there have photos of the Mount Coffee Dam, Bong Mines, Bomi Mines, Monrovia City, the Freeport, the airport...in fact, anything now reduced to a shadow of what it once was? Olly
