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 Scouting Association of Liberia

Liberian Scouts display some of the qualities that have been lost in recent years from Scouting in the UK: they are still proud to wear their uniform and stand out in the crowd, and spend one afternoon a week doing good deeds for free, which is entirely admirable in Liberia where I can guarantee that many of them would be grateful to earn a few dollars to buy food. They can regularly be seen around town, helping out...as I said in my previous blog entry, Baden Powell would have been proud of them, and everything they continue to stand for. Olly
