What to do on a Liberian national holiday? Visit the dilapidated shell, the ransacked, burned out and looted skeleton of what used to be Liberia's finest hotel, obviously. I'll confess the appeal is lost on me, but the company was good.
|"Hotel Africa" built by the Doe administration something like 35-40 years ago. Used to be where they'd put up visiting heads of state. A pool shaped like the continent of Africa with a huge floating bar. And this is what's left...|
|Post hotel-visit lunching area.|
|Waterfront view was pretty snazzy, I'll admit.|
|Mmmm, beer. Mediocre, Liberian beer, but still... beer.|
|Furniture made from old armament. Only available in post-conflict countries. Yay, us?|
|Crew for the day. We are awesome. Clearly.|
