- Though there is strong evidence of destruction and ruin after the war, you can get a glimpse of what used to be here.
- It's odd that there are almost no older people or people with disabilities around. A lot were killed during the war - either through being left behind when fleeing villages or full out extermination in the case of the disabled.
- People are fairly open to talking about the war, the government, the upcoming elections and problems they see in their community.
- The generosity of the people is humbling.
- The bugs weren't as bad as I was expecting but I'm sure that will be different during the rainy season.
- There are so many evident and identifiable needs that it feels overwhelming at times. I think the best place to start is with one small step.
- Learning Liberian English would be helpful - if only they made an audible translation dictionary for that (as it is written the same but spoken differently).
- Everyone seemed happy to see us - even the ladies across the street yelling "HEY, White Lady! I want some chop!" through our kitchen window.
- This is a really awesome place, I will definitely be back here.
