Hello, We are in
This is #JOLLOFROAD
If you had exactly 24 hours to spend in The Gambia, your day couldn’t be complete without taking a trip to Albert Market, petting a couple of crocodiles and stopping by Coco Resort one of The Gambia’s many luxurious resorts.
The Gambia is teeming with food. The biggest dilemma you could be faced with is where to eat. And that’s where we come in. Start at Kadie Kadie and end at Coco Ocean Resort.
How do you spend a day in a country where you could run into the president’s wife at a supermarket at least once a week?
We tried to get into Guinea Bissau by road on a bright and early Saturday morning, we expected to get to Bissau in 8 hours. Throw in border issues and maybe 10 hours at most. It took us 2 days.
For Fu’ad and Toke, Guinea will always be the country where their bodies finally betrayed them. But Guinea wasn’t only about hospital runs and buying a ton of drugs. We actually had some fun.
In Sierra Leone, we met the Minister of Culture. Here’s what she told us about the country:
In Sierra Leone, we met a few people who tagged Nigeria Jollof as Salty and Sour, and as usual, urged us to try out Sierra Leone jollof because it was ‘the best’. This video chronicles our journey to find a restaurant that had Sierra Leone jollof rice; it was scarce.
We spent 6 days in Liberia doing nothing but talking to as many Liberians as we could. About Ebola, the war and everything in between. Each person’s story left us teary-eyed in awe and giggling all at once.
Robertsport, Liberia is a large community of almost a hundred native Liberian surfers. And that is where we met “The Dreamers”.
When it comes to the Jollof Wars, Liberia is an unlikely contender. Nigerians and Ghanaians make the most noise about owning Jollof. Senegambians revel in the surety that no one can dispute that Jollof started with them. So where does that live Jollof in other countries like Liberia? We found out.
