The beauty of Nimba mountains.

We have beautiful places to go sight seeing in and  around Liberia, the people , the country side. the land scape and different types of animals and trees. please allow me to share my trip with you.

It was  early Januaray when two friends from France, both journalist from a magarzine call GEO widely read, they came to do stories on the development , reconstruction and life of the common liberian. most of the time , many of the stories are mainly in and around monrovia so people out in the different counties are not heard about and know of. 

see some of the pictures.

Tobey, I completely agree with you. This weekend I went on a trip to Robertsport and I was amazed by the natural beauty of the area. I think that Liberia has a big tourism potential.

Hello Emmanuel (Tango),

I read David’s post at Rising Voices yesterday which made me aware of the work with blogs you and your colleagues are doing in the Dept. of Mass Communications at the University of Liberia. So first of all, welcome to the blogosphere and hoping that you have fun with it and make lots of friends in the global blogging community.

I have a very good friend from Liberia named Stephen so I will tell him about the new bloggers from the U. of Liberia. Steve and I live and work in Germany; my hometown is St. Louis, Missouri in the United States. I have a very keen interest in learning more about the history of our two countries (the U.S.A. and Liberia) and of course want to visit Liberia some day soon. One of the U.S.A.’s first ambassadors to Liberia hailed from the city of St. Louis. James Milton Turner, appointed by President Ulysses S. Grant, served as U.S. Ambassador to Liberia from 1871-1878. He returned to America and became a prominent educator and supporter of education rights for the children of African Americans who had migrated to the St. Louis area after the American Civil War.

I have some questions relating to your main focus at “2tango” (ecology, tourism, conservation) so I will be stopping by from time- to-time in order to follow-up on your writing. I am especially interested in the area around Robertsport (Robert’s Port) on the Cape Mount penninsula, named after the first African American president of Liberia (J.J. Roberts). The beautiful coastline there, the sea, and the people were made famous in an award-winning documentary film titled “Sliding Liberia” by filmmakers Nicholai Lidwo and Britton Caillouette (Stanford Univ., 2007-2008).

Have you ever had the opportunity to view this documentary in Liberia or watch the film online? I realize that viewing the film trailers online may be a problem due to (presumed) low-bandwidth Internet access. In case you have not seen it I will provide the links (URL’s) below and a link to the Lonely Planet text article on Robertsport. Looking forward to hearing from you soon and again good luck with your new blog “2tango”:

I also read today that some South African’s have opened up an eco-lodge on the beach at Robertsport named ‘Nana’s Lodge & Resort’. Are there any more government plans to develop this area for tourism and how much community participation is taking place in this planning. Does Nana’s train and employ local people in the running of the lodge and is there transportation services between Monrovia and Robertsport?

O.K. that’s all the questions that I have for today (smile). Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions whenever and wherever it is possible.

Auf Wiedersehen aus Deutschland!
