Common misconceptions and clichés about life in Liberia

Hello everyone,

Old clichés die hard, as the saying goes... and living in Liberia can generate lots of misconceptions in the eyes of the people.

What are the most common misconceptions about the expat lifestyle in Liberia?

What are the most common clichés about life in Liberia in general?

Did you have a biased view of the country before moving there? What is you view now?

Thanks in advance,


That just because Liberians do not look people in the eye when they are speaking, that it means they are lying.  tradition and courtesy dictates that we do not look people in the eye if they are older or are higher  (in jobs, ) than we are.  Looking people in the eye directly is considered rude.
