This might seem extreme for a missionary hair-do. It's called plaiting, and is very common among the African women. If it's not plaited, they wear wigs. This wouldn't even raise an eyebrow here in Liberia. She said it took about 30 minutes to do her hair!

|Judy, standing in front of the Cotton Tree trunk. They are|
gorgeous trees, and this picture shows how huge they grow.
|Mossy Rocks. They are beautiful.|
|One of the 4 deer that freely roam the compound.|

|View of the Mission Home from our long driveway. It's smokey|
because of a fire burning in the neighborhood.
|This fire forced us inside. We couldn't breath the smoke. They are burning "dirt", or trash as we call it. This one went on for hours!|
|This is a Bird Nest Tree. I'm sure the tree has another name,|
but it called that because of the bird nest built in it. We see
them all over in the villages.
|Close up of the Bird Nest Tree. The interesting thing about these nests is that the opening is on the down side. I haven't seen a baby bird fall out yet!|
| Way back when I had a computer, I posted a view from our|
compound of the Ducor Hotel, and then I dropped the ball.
I was totally taken in by this place, so I'm starting again with
the front view.
I just loved this old rotting chair that was left
It's kind of eerie. The windows, of course are gone, but
on the view from the 3 foot wide walk way is spectacular.
About 4 flights of stairs from this view with no hand railing.
|A room with a spectacular view|
Great view of the coast line.
