Hotel Africa

The day after Christmas we took the Berrett's  on a "mission tour" of the missionary apartments in our area so they could get to know where they are. There are no real addresses or street signs here. You find places by land marks and buildings painted a certain color etc.  We ended the tour near Brewerville and took a detour to see what is left of Hotel Africa.  It was the only 5 star hotel in Liberia before the war.  In it's day it must have been stunning.  The beach that it sits on is gorgeous!!!!!  Only a shell of the building remains and the jungle is taking it over. 

During the war they would distribute food for children at Hotel Africa.  Women would walk hours to get a little food for their children. Then make the long walk home only to repeat it again the next day.
