Firestone, Liberia

Today we travelled out to the Firestone Rubber plant today which is about an hour drive from Monrovia. It was neat to see the acres and acres of rubber trees with the bark pulled back to extract the rubber resembling the same technique of extracting maple syrup. Firestone creates a bunch of jobs, small villiages have sprung up around the plant and the employees of Firestone are generational since the early 1800s.
