For breakfast at the hotel had beans, chicken stew (hot ish), cous cous and paw paw with pineapple. Nice chop, although for the western market. Take a shower and went for a walk on Lumley beach. Drove through Aberdeen with our driver onto Congo Cross and getting down to business, which is land, property and ownership. It is a hot topic since the civil war and peace that has followed.
The West have always been under the illusion they are the only ones that house a multicultural diaspora. West Africa has had its own version of invaders and traders for centuries. Of all those who have come and gone, its safe to say the Lebanese are the largest non-African ethnic minority in West Africa. And how did this happen? Research indicates that sometime in the 19th Century, certain Lebanese groups were on their way to Brazil and landed on the West coast by mistake believing it to be South America. These travelers were mainly Manorite Christians.
