at long last!

The pictures are posted and captioned! Here's the deal - I left my compound and walked toward the Atlantic Ocean, wandered through the communities that live near the coast, looped past the fishing beach, headed back toward the main road (runs out to the airport and Firestone's rubber plantation), walked the road toward the Junction and then turned around and walked back to my compound. The scenery is truly amazing (I lucked out and the lighting was even more incredible than usual the day I took the pictures) and I'm still struck by how green the green is in Liberia! It's such a fertile country and the vegetation is lush and beautiful - if only there wasn't trash strewn everywhere and crumbling buildings that families have been forced to turn into homes. Oh Mama Africa!

Let me know if you have questions. I also added a few more pictures to my original Liberia album so get in there too! Use the link below or the one on the right side like before.

Your pictures were great. Thanks for taking them all. Sort of made me want to get my haircut in that place, make cement blocks, and poop on rocks. (Kyle and I tried to identify some poop, to no avail - I wish you had caught people in action.)

Ocean pics were beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Muah! - Bessie & Kyle
