Fresh Fish

With a view ahead to the ocean it came from.

With a view of the ocean it came from.

Last weekend I went to the beach (surprise) and ordered fresh grilled fish at the beach-side restaurant. It’s nothing fancy – served up on a metal plate and eaten at a plastic table in the sand under dried palm fronds – but it was pretty damn good. I ate grilled sole, one of the  many fish that are plentiful in Liberian waters, along with marlin, barracuda, and mackerel. What I love about eating fish fresh out of the sea is that you barely need to do anything to it – you can just cook it with a bit of oil and salt and it’s still amazing.

I first left the US in 1999, when I was 18 years old. Since then, I’ve spent 13 years living abroad - 3 in Canada, 7 in Europe, and 3 in Africa. Now I've finally returned to the US on a one-way plane ticket. I arrived home in late January 2014 and set foot in the US for the first time in nearly 2.5 years. In Home Strange Home, I blog about the ups and downs of my re-acculturation experience.
