The "new" Royal Hotel's coffee shop and restaurant are delectable.
I'm constantly reminded of the stark contrasts one can experience in Liberia, one of the poorest countries in the world, making a come back. I am always amused by the meeting of the different worlds in this teeny, tiny tropical West African country: aid worker types splurging in fancy restaurants, the extraction industry types, the Liberian returnees, the missionary types, bushy tailed youngsters coming to save the world, and the local business types (that includes me!).
Monrovia is a unique melting pot.
