    Hi Rebekah. I’m preparing to travel to Liberia for the first time. I’m doing some online research now on customs, food, and what would make nice gifts to bring home, etc. Found your blog and am thankful for the candid commentary about your trip so far. I hope to follow your future posts, and perhaps become more interested in what you have to share after I return from my short trim in February.

      Thank you, Tommy! I’m so glad you found my blog and are enjoying it. I would be happy to receive a letter from you. Mail takes between three weeks and… three months. My address is posted on the front page of my blog on the right. It is very difficult to send mail out from Liberia as the postal system, like everything else, is being rebuilt but I will surely try. There is a post office across the street from my school but I’ve never investigated if it actually does anything. You’ll give me an excuse now!
