This evening we joined the Africa Mercy's nine Liberian crew members in celebrating their country's Independence Day. Liberia was the first country in Africa to become a republic, gaining independence from America in 1847.
Anyway, Chris and Oretha spent the whole day cooking a selection of Liberian dishes, including my absolute favourite, rice and potato greens (below):

There was enough food to allow Libby and me to plate up more fish and greens for dinner tomorrow! Happy Birthday Liberia. Olly
