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.

Las Palmas shops

If you want to buy clothes in Liberia, you look for a man selling the types you need from a wheelbarrow or a market stall. Some men sell only jeans, others only t-shirts, others only socks, others only bras, etc etc. It makes shopping for specific items very hard - if you can't find a jeans man, you can't buy any jeans. There are virtually no shops that sell clothes. Sally regularly heads into town to buy clothes for the kids, only to come back with only a fraction of what she wanted. So imagine our delight when we were able to explore the shops in Las Palmas, which sell what we want where we'd expect it to be, and make stocking up for the coming year so much easier. Olly
