I made it safe and sound! I'm sitting in my living room, with my feet propped up, listening to the hum of the generator and on the internet!?! WOOHOO! The trip was pretty uneventful, and I got a decent amount of sleep between the two flights. It was 86 degrees and fairly cloudy when we landed, so the ride from the airport with the windows down was almost chilly!?
I've only been here for a few hours, but I'm already seeing people. Sam, my faithful taxi driver picked us up at the airport (with Andrew and Cramer, of course….the jeep’s out of commission right now). Momo and some of the neighborhood kids were waiting on the road for us, and then Emmanuel, Moses and One Love were waiting on the driveway. I walked down the street to say hello to our neighbors, and then came back to get settled in.
I’m already feeling at home. I’ve unpacked and got myself semi-organized. I had a bowl of rice with collard greens and plantains for dinner (YUM!)….it made my lips tingle, but I’m sure I’ll be used to the spice again soon. I had a freezing cold shower outside, and now I’m sitting in my very own living room online! Can't beat that!
Anyway, just wanted to say a quick hello from Liberia. I hit the ground running in the morning because it’s Thursday—food delivery day! It will be so good to see all of the kids. Hopefully I'll be able to get some pics and/or videos up tomorrow.
Goodnight from Liberia!
