It took me less than a month to reach Portugal by the east Portuguese border. Program, of course cycling but also learning Spanish the main goal of this trip, meeting faces and discovering more and more. I am now in Porto. Here is a short resume in picture.
I had to make a very short documentary showing daily routine of a student living in the West Point Slum in Liberia. We arrived there around 4:45am, with Estevan Padilla that will assist me during the shooting process. We have 3 guys living there with us to take care in case of something wrong happen.
West Point is empty as this time, we are the only people in the main street, a very few lights are on, just to give you a hint of where you are. but when the speaker start to yell some praying, everything start getting alive. I think having a look at the video will be better than thousands words to explain.
Spending a day or two after a 3 hours driving throughout trafic and jungle. Robertsport is everything but what you can find in Monrovia: Calm, restful and clean.
