Today was Unification Day, a national holiday in Liberia. Many of the shops around Monrovia were closed so that people could spend time with their families, so I decided to use the free time to continue preparing for the courses that will be starting tomorrow. After a while, I decided it would be nice to explore the town a little bit and went on a hike through the neighborhood. I ended up finding my way down to the beach where I was able to set back and relax. People were out playing, running and swimming in the ocean as the sunset, so I figured I’d take a few minutes and snap a few photos. Happy Unification Day!
