The Bustling City

The LOEP team has been working hard at school, but it's not all work and no play. we took full advantage of the weekend and headed into Monrovia for some shopping (lappas of course!) and sight seeing.

The streets of Monrovia are lined with booths. People sell all kinds of things! Of course, we are partial to the shops with colorful lappas!

There is a lot of road construction going on on Monrovia, as well as other parts of Montserrado County. Not only are they constructing new roads, but new sewer pipes are being installed as well. This is the intersection of Benson and Center Streets in Monrovia. It's definitely an exciting time of rebuilding for Liberia!

This lady has a head full of potato greens and was on her way across the Montserrado River into the city.

Several men were unloading boxes of paper off of this truck. The paper was being delivered to a "business center" (in the alley), complete with copy machine and typewriters.

  1. I like the red lappa. Is that Matt Damon on the poster in the last picture?
