Yesterday, we finally left Liberia. We have set sail for the Canary Islands for a break, from which I’ll be flying home.
It was a bittersweet leaving, I’m happy to be leaving Liberia, we are all a bit worn out from being here, but sad that I’ll probably never see it again.
Here are some shots of us departing — we had a small group of Liberian friends on the dock saying goodbye. Our Africa Mercy is in good condition, and our technical crew worked hard to get us ready to go. Our engines started up without a hitch, we pulled up the gangway, and quietly began to pull away from the dockside, pulling out of the harbor, past the breakwaters, and out to the open sea.
Below are photos of us leaving the port.
