Our friends the Terry's stayed at the Royal Grand Hotel. It is nicest hotel in town and the only business that takes a credit card (this is a cash society). When we dropped them off I noticed their Christmas tree. It reminded me of the Barbie birthday cakes we all use to make. This Christmas tree used African fabric on the bodice, to cover the ornaments and as the ribbon. It was put up and used to tie into "Fashion Week" in Monrovia. Very clever!!!
Our friends the Terry's from Accra, Ghana came this last week for a visit. Elder Terry is the IT man for all of West Africa and Sister Terry is the literacy specialist. It was so great to be with them, visit and feel of their love and friendship. We picked them up at the airport and made a small detour before heading back to town at the Harbel Country Market for some fruit. The Harbel Market on the Firestone Plantation is the best place for fruit, the local's are all so friendly. Sister Terry was talking with the local kids while I got some fruit. I remembered that my granddaughter Emma's kindergarten class was doing the "Gingerbread Man" geography activity. All the local kids were willing to participate. They love to have their picture taken and see themselves.
