Those of us in Sierra Leone have known for a long time about high gas prices, now the world knows just how much the tiny war-torn, poverty stricken nation of Sierra Leone must pay for a gallon of gas! Outrageous! I will have more to report from Freetown and share about this soon. Please check back. James has been trying to email the pictures and report to me about the high gas prices but the servers in the internet cafes have not cooperated. Keep checking back, we'll get the news to you.

If this is your first visit to the blog, scroll through previous posts for the latest in news from our work in Sierra Leone. thank you.
