Bernard's Beach in the Economist
This is from earlier this year, but it’s not everyday that a nice sunset view of a Monrovia beach is featured in the venerable pages of The Economist, even only its online Baobab Blog, which, thanks to the surfeit of talented journalists in the region, regularly features posts from Monrovia. Arresting to scroll onto a page of a major publication and see the spot where I go jogging in the mornings, and swimming in the afternoons.
This serene scene accompanied a post on the HipCo festival on Bernard's Beach, which was organized with several HipCo artists in cooperation with the Accountability Lab, a highly innovative and productive Anti-corruption and pro-social NGO run by my friend Blair Glencorse.
