Is this vandalism? Snapping your fingers as part of a greeting? Could someone please explain or revert. Thanks. Bob
Removed someone killed at Mamba Point
"Also keep in mind that one person was killed at the Mamba Point Hotel, and you should exercise security and be in the hotel room before it gets dark."
I removed the line above as it's not necessarily relevant. The murder took place already on the 24th of May, 2004, when John Auffrey, the head of the American Military Team for restructuring the Army, was murdered in his hotel room. Apparently at the same time Sierra Leone's war crime prosecutor, David Crane, was also staying at the hotel, and the killers had mistaken Auffrey for Crane.
Recent pictures from Liberia
I recently traveled to Liberia on a research project. During the trip I gathered a few photos which might be interesting to some. If interested, they can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/kippster/sets/72157594330811969/
It is just the Monrovia area...
Liberia has fifteen (15) political sub-divisions, known as counties:
I removed this administrative division list, since that's not a useful travel subdivision, and is too fine-grained anyway for such a small country. Ideally, the first travel division of the country would probably be more like 2-5 regions. --Peter Talk 11:35, 15 March 2008 (EDT)
For 2-5 regions suggested above, I propose the following three regions:
The simplest distribution map to see how this would look that I can find is here  With the exception of a small portion of Bong County, the rivers also follow the political borders.  The mountain ranges are also divided by each of these regions.
I was going to use the mountain ranges (Putu Range in the south and Wologizi and Wonegizi Ranges in the north), but that would require extra regions, like a coastal region, and either separating the north into two slim regions or coming up with name that combines the mountain ranges, so I think the above works better.
