Tour of Monrovia

I took some tourists on a short tour of some places to shop in Monrovia. It was the wife and children of a UN staff from Pakistan visiting their husband and father from Karachi. It was fun to take them around and show Monrovia. We traveled in a keke

West African beaded masks in Mamba Point. These are displayed in small shops across the Mamba Point Hotel. These make have been carved and beaded here in Monrovia, apparently for the first time, as claimed by this shop owner.
