Monrovia, Liberia, January 14, 2019

I had a horrible sleep - awake lots and especially when it sounded like someone from The Exorcist was singing by the front gate.  I tossed and turned in the heat but at least I avoided most of the fire ants that were nibbling everyone else!

We caught a cab to The Junction for 50 cents - so cheap, then a government official picked us up in his air conditionned Acura and gave us a ride close to the Ivory Coast Embassy.  After about an hour, we went to the Ghana Embassy where luckily we met Thomas and Carole who had just come from there.  Will needed a letter of explanation for Ghana so we walked to a nearbycorner to type it and print it.  Right on the street!


This is a book read in local schools.  At least it appears culturally correct, not the murder part but the cassava part-


Once the application was accepted at Ghana, we headed for lunch at a nice but expensive Lebanese restaurant where I had kebbeh - delicious and tabouleh.  I enjoyed it a lot.  All of a sudden, Laieb showed up, he's the owner of the school, and he gave us a ride back to camp-

 
I went across the road with Norm and Leanne for a beer-


where I guess you're not supposed to just hang out-


The Ghana visas will be ready tomorrow but those from Ivory Coast won't be ready until Wednesday at 2 pm, so we are here for another couple of days.  Going to explore the city tomorrow1
