Years ago one of our refrigerated ships loaded with frozen chicken went to Monrovia on charter. Got there, charterer didnt have enough refrigerated storage or refrigerated trucks to move it. Canadian Captain was spastic. Hot as heck…ship beginning to run low on freon n none available in large enuf qty in port…..men in cars started showing up at request of charterer and taking as many boxes offrozen…now barely frozen, wet, dripping…soon stinking,chicken from the holds. Dealing with the people there was a horrible ordeal. Most poorly educated, many from tiny bush villages full of tribal suspicions and beliefs…gone to city to make a better life. Filthy, dirty, corrupt. Poor citizenry. This doesn’t surprise me at all. Tragedy. Count yr blessings. For all our faults and troubles….we should count ourselves mostfortunate to live here.
