We have had many interesting Liberian experiences thus far. Way more than we have time to share on the blog. However, here is a quick interaction that should bring a few laughs!
Kyle has been working outside these 1st few days. On a couple of occasions, including yesterday, he has made a trip down to the beach. The beach is only a short walk from the house we are staying in. After work Kyle made his way with Equip Liberia's director (Dave) down to the beach for a swim. There were quite a few Liberians out on the beach and when they saw Kyle and Dave this is what they said:
"Look, Look, white men go swimming!" (obviously said with a Liberian accent)
Liberians apparently don't really swim so this was an event! Someone was not only going swimming, but they were also white! I am sure that this is the first of many similar experiences.
