Sunday June 15th, Jim, Julie, and I took a short tour of Monrovia. It was mostly an automobile tour and since almost all businesses are closed on Sunday, there was little traffic. We visited several neighborhoods and the monument in tribute to the original freed American slaves that founded the democracy here. It was both uplifting and somewhat sad. Uplifting to see people laughing, living their lives in spite of the conditions, uplifting too when you see people doing whatever it takes to advance their place and their country.
p.s. – there’s a slideshow here, it might take a minute or two to appear.
