Country Nr 12 – Liberia – visiting the diverse city of Monrovia

Country 12/196: Liberia
Destination: Monrovia

Monrovia is the capital of Liberia and it’s a beautiful, diverse, and modern city.
As for the local food, it’s the first time that we really didn’t like it. The tastes were way too strong! But that’s just our humble opinion, we’re sure many of you would love it. 🙂
There is lots of love to be found on the streets of Monrovia, we’ve witnessed some truly heartwarming scenes! However, since people really don’t like being photographed it’s getting increasingly difficult to get an HQ photo of love. We hope you won’t mind.

All in all, it was a great experience! Thank you, Liberia!

Environmental issues

Tropical rain forest deforestation is one of the most pressing concerns in Liberia. The country used to have significant primary forest reserves, however, nowadays those reserves are threatened by commercial logging, firewood cutting, and even a government land-clearing program. Forests currently account for less than 30% of Liberia’s land. Hunting and loss of habitat have caused severe biodiversity loss. Soil erosion is another major environmental problem, and so is pollution of coastal waters from oil residue and raw sewage. The water supply is limited. Only 13% of the rural population has access to pure drinking water.

Found lots of LOVE in Liberia. 😉 ♥
