I have been in Sierra Leone for a week, and this morning, I took a trip to Goderich, a fishing community with a huge Fante population, near Freetown, accompanied by Ato Brown, the Ghanaian World Bank Country Manager for Sierra Leone, and we saw serious fish... real fish... The kind of fish that has become rare species in Ghana's seas... And yes, they are in the seas of Sierra Leone... There may be all kinds of ecological reason why, but when we spoke to the Fisherfolks (in Fante) they were clear in their minds, that the illegal fishing practices in Ghana is the cause. First, the trawlers are checked and prevented from fishing at least 5 kilometers from the shore... Second, they told us they only use the right size of net ie 2 inches by 2 inches (and we did not see any monofilament nets)......
Beautiful colours and a mixture of organic food stuff and determined and courageous women.

A Landrace pepper from Sierra Leone. This one was found in Kroo Town Street Market in the capital of Sierra Leone, Freetown. Another great West African pepper sent to me by Joe Delaney. The aroma is all straight ahead chinense, with slight fruit notes. The flavor is also very straight ahead C.chinense, with aspects of sweetness and fruitiness. There is an undercurrent of black pepper flavor in an astringent way. This is another African pepper that was quite different in flavour to most C.chinense I`ve had. It really is a delicious one and well worth seeking out seeds to grow. The heat is another slow-onset type, but quite aggressive and biting. It sits on your tongue and is relatively painful for a pepper that is roughly half as hot as a habanero. How hot was it? Half as hot as an hab...

King Jimmy is an historical port in Freetown. In the 18th century it was the centre of the slave trade in Sierra Leone. Thousands of people were taken down the steps and put on boats to the Americas. The area has been neglected for many years but still exists as a place where people live and work.

A container of imported chickens that had gone was taken to the Bomeh dumping site yesterday afternoon to be thrown away, but despite police intervention to prevent the rotten chicken from being taken away by people, none of the cartons of smelly chickens could be buried! The few police personnel deployed to ensure the expired cartons of chickens were properly buried were overpowered by the large crowds who regarded the circumstance as an opportunity to get some food for their families and to make some money from sales.There will be little surprise if we hear of an outbreak of diarrhea in the coming days.This is not the first time expired food has been dug up from the dumping site. The Government issued a statement warning the public against eating the contaminated chicken.
This shot was taken over a 30-40 minute time frame. The shutter was 1/30, every 3 sec. We were eventually shut down by the police as they don't allow filming without a permit from the Sierra Leone government. I managed to stall them longenough to finish this piece. Nov. 2010
