Liberia Arrival

I have had no time to blog over here. I am crazy busy. I woke up around 4 am on Monday, was at the airport by 6 am and on my way to New York, then Accra, then finally Monrovia, arriving around 1 pm on Tuesday. Got to the hotel, showered and then proceeded to have meetings with our team until around 9 pm, and then proceeded to imbibe way too many spirits with our team and the usual bunch of whacky misfits (and I use this term lovingly) who hang out here at Sam's aka the Atlantis Hotel, until later than I care to admit. When you have just traveled many miles and your body clock is all screwed up, you have no idea how late it is until suddenly someone checks their watch and you realize you have to get up in 4 hours for a long day of important meetings. Its a fun group of people and I haven't seen some of them in a year so it was exciting to catch up and it feels great to be back here. I did not feel so great when I had to drag myself out of bed this morning. It was a very tough day. But a good day too in terms of the work.

I have a lot I want to share about Liberia, but for now I only have the energy to share a photo. Good night from the eastern side of the Atlantic ocean...

View from my hotel window at the Atlantis Hotel. Atlantic Ocean, Monrovia.

I was trying to be artistic with the security bars.
P.S. It took me about 30 minutes to upload these two photos - welcome to the high speed internet in Liberia. I hope I can get this entry uploaded before I pass out...
