This is what we see every day in and around Monrovia, the capital city of Liberia

This boy had made a pull toy out of soda pop cans cut in two for wheels.
We liked this picture of a boy carrying eggs across the main bridge in downtown Monrovia. Anyone who wants an egg, he will stop, reach up for the eggs, sell them and move on - usually never taking them off his head. Women sell eggs all over. It's unusual to see a boy selling eggs.
None of the police here carry weapons. The only ones with weapons are the UN peacekeeping troups, who we rarely see. We got good news this week that the UN peace keeping troups have extended their stay in Liberia for another year. Notice also the man's "store" (wheelbarrow) full of coconuts for sale.
