Ask a Liberian

March 9, 2010 2 comments

A couple of weeks ago we wrote about featured our first Liberian blog (Ceasefire Liberia) here on Blogs of the World.

Therefore we’re very excited that some of the bloggers from the Ceasefire Liberia project have agreed to be interviewed on PocketCultures. As we wrote before some are living in Liberia and some abroad (mostly in Staten Island, USA).

We’ll be running a week of interviews – Ask a Liberian week.

So PocketCultures readers, we want to hear from you – what do you want to know about the realities of life in Liberia, Liberian culture, Liberian people?

Tell us your questions here in the comments, via Twitter, or by filling in this form.

  • I have a question, in parts:

    How easy is it as an expat to make friends with Liberians?

    What is it that turns Liberians off in the behavior of foreigners in general?

    What sort of behavior or actions are appreciated?

    What should never be said or done?

    I’ve lived in a number of foreign countries including Ghana, West Africa, and I’ve learned that a little cultural sensitivity is a must to make your life in a foreign country a good experience.

  • Miss Footloose, thanks for these thoughtful questions – we’ll be sure to ask them.
