eating and drinking

I tried two Liberian dishes yesterday, both had lots of rice, and fish. One was extremely spicy and the pepper left an after-taste kick. It is prepared in Palm oil and is very high in cholesterol. It stuck with me most of the day, which is probably why most eat it here, because it might be one of the only meals they get. If I ate it everyday, I would probably gain 100 pounds in my 5 months that I was here, and probably have a heart attack soon there after.
The local beer is brewed in Monrovia called Club Beer. It is a sweet beer and very malty. It is a decent beer, but things tend to not stay cold here.
