Our Liberian team has arrived

The team arrived at Monrovia's Robertson Field in  two shifts last night, all in great shape. Firestone officials were at the airport to meet us, whisk us through customs (only one suitcase is AWOL supposedly arriving sometime Saturday)
The Firestone Guest House staff prepared a wonderful welcome dinner with many senior Bridgestone and Firestone Liberia staff as well as senior hospital executives.
Thanks to a donation by CSI Partner Michael Silvio of 50 soccer balls we got out the hand pumps and blew up 20 to distribute on Saturday
Three other team members are due late Saturday. It is very, very warm and the sky looks heavy with impending rain which we are secretly hoping for. There is something magical about falling asleep to the sound of rain pelting the metal roofs.
