Corruption, Waiting and Potholed Dirt Tracks

So you arrive in Freetown, West Africa in the early morning at the Lungi international airport safety from a British Airport night flight from London. In March it's hot and sticky it's 6am. Be prepared for being asked for money as the first foot hits the ground. The passport official was the first. I'll be your best friend now give me some money he said. You are dazed and don't expected it. Welcome to Africa.

Breakfast Stew and Rice

Have just arrived back in the UK having stayed at the hotel for 7 days. Location wise I doubt you will find any better in Freetown. It is a prefect setting with two pools and stunning views and sunsets over the ocean. In march it was extremely hot so I often took dips in the pool or just chilled on a sunbed. I really enjoyed the food and you must try the red snapper which was very fresh and tasty.
