    Monrovia stadium

    Attractions in Monrovia include the Liberian National Museum, the now ruined Masonic Temple, the Waterside Market, (currently closed) cultural centre on Providence Island and several beaches. It is also home to a zoo. The city also houses one of the biggest sports stadiums in Africa, with seats for 40,000.

    The pic. is of Monrovia stadium. This is the place where all the people who are dispersed due to civil war live.

    View of the front of the temple

    One of the oldest buildings in Monrovia, it was built about the time that the former slaves arrived here. It was used as a refugee center during the recent civil war. We walked around but unfortunately could not go inside.

    Statue outside the hall

    This is where the presidents of Liberia are sworn in and it also houses several copies of their Declaration of Independence. Long time president William Tubman is buried here as well.

    Worker collecting the sap on the plantation

    At one time this was the largest rubber plantation in the world. We drove around it while waiting for our flight. The trees are cut and the buckets catch the sap, which is then processed.
