We arrived at Freetown the morning after the eclipse. This afternoon was going to be our last adventure (we had not yet experienced the ferry).

Freetown was a shock to the system. Dakar had been mostly functional as had been most other areas we visited in Africa. This made Dakar seem almost European. Even Zambia and China in 1987 were better developed.

Sierra Leone suffered through the Blood Diamond Wars. While those days are past the country has clearly not recovered.
