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.

The last working traffic lights in Liberia


At many busy road junctions in Monrovia, there are the remains of traffic lights. In fact there is a neighbourhood actually called "Red Light", named after the traffic light that used to be there. But there is only one set of working lights in the whole of Monrovia (probably the whole of Liberia), pictured, which is located outside the Freeport gates. I'm not sure if the Port Authority or neighbouring City Builders provide electricity and maitenance. But I hate these light! Traffic flows so much better without them! Olly
