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.

Bottling factory trip


On Wednesday I went with the kids from the Academy to the bottling plant of a company called Aqua Life. They pull water out of a deep well, and filter it several times before bottling it, in a very hi-tech factory the likes of which I had never seen before in Liberia. The building had been imported from France, and some of the machinery from China. Bottles and caps and labels and cardboard boxes all have to be imported too, from all over the world...the operation is massive, and obviously has cost an enormous amount to set up. Thanks to Harish for showing us around (see photo). Olly
