Just a quick stop while delivering relief supplies to this war ravaged nation. Quite a dangerous place when I was there. I often heard gunfire in the distance from the rebels...

A bit of History

Liberia was colonized in the early 19th century by African-American slave decendents. It was designed to be a place for them to return to Africa.

The nation's name comes from the word 'Liberty.' The capital is named after James Monroe, the US president at the time. Their currency looks very much like US currency.....

I hope that Charles Taylor's decision to leave the country brings back some well-deserved peace to this tiny coastal nation.
