The Lumley Boys
During my first month in Freetown, I spent my days interviewing a group of ex-combatants who live on the streets in an area called Lumley. After I finished with all of the interviews and a big group discussion, we decided to celebrate with a feast. We bought ingredients at the nearby market to make a traditional Sierra Leonean dish called "Groundnut Stew", and then cooked the meal in their "kitchen", aka a patch of sidewalk on the street where the guys spend most of their time.
