Freetown, Sierra Leone
People walk past a traditional colonial-era Board House dating back about a century on the main road through the Murray Town neighbourhood of Sierra Leone's capital Freetown April 28, 2012. The home is one of the West Indies-influenced board houses in Freetown - known as 'bode ose' in the krio vernacular. The city's unique architecture is a living link to its past history as a colony established for freed slaves. Picture taken April 28, 2012.
