We just learned that the minister of passports left for the US and didn't leave anyone else with the authority to release passports. She'll be returning to Liberia next Wednesday, so we definitely won't get passports for the kids before then.
We so admire the way Africans are less time conscious and more relationally oriented, instead of time and task driven like Americans. And as people who have travelled a bit throughout the world, we have learned to really appreciated the differences between cultures. However, today we'd like to fly over to Africa and teach everyone the right way to do things! (Please note that we're joking... or at least 90% joking... when we say that. Well, maybe 80%.)
