Oh those highways!!!

We lived in Liberia between 2006 and 2009. There were virtually no roads and travelling from one town to another especially during the monsoons was a nightmare. The odds of reaching the destination without incident were very low. A number of such drives included sessions of make your own road…

During one such trip from Yekepa to Monrovia, the Landcruiser we were travelling in got stuck in the slush and it took 2 hours and 5 men to physically lift it and free the wheels.
