This week we visited a small fishing village. There were colorful boats and nets all around on the beach. We were lucky to be there just as they were bringing a boat out of the water. No boat launch here. It was amazing to watch the men work together as a team to bring it in.
This is 12 year old Frank, our self-appointed tour guide at Hotel Africa. A quiet, considerate young guy, he sort of attached himself to April and I, finding shells on the beach and even digging a live crab out of the sand, at some peril to his fingers. As we were leaving, I handed him 20 Liberian dollars and he was thrilled with it. I am a little embarrassed to admit that 20LD is worth about 17 cents US. He told me his village doesn't have a latrine, so we will go back and talk to the community elders to ascertain if their village would be a good location for LDS Charities to build one.
