Added bonus of the Hippo hands. Had a sudden flat tire at speed on the interstate and lost control before i could come to a complete stop. I think the hippo hands kept my hands in a protected area for a few more seconds than normal. End result was no damage to my hands in the get-off. I did break a big toe though. I wonder if they make hippo feet????

Liberia has a lot in common with Washington, DC.

Not so good at unloading ships, though. This one rolled when it was unloaded improperly, and was left to rust:


Much more tranquil outside the cities:

I wouldn't say that. Quality of life in Monrovia couldn't even make the charts, the levels of violence during their war makes DC's worst look like friendly banter. But for the fact that Liberians were repatriated, they'd be Americans. Makes you realize how much you've won life's lottery.

Haha! Yep, way to nice to be inside so I took the airhead on a Gilligan. Was out there until late when I got home though.
