There was barely even electricity in most of the residential "homes" My friend's place we stayed at, they had a generator that runs on regular gasoline and gas was well over $4 US dollars a gallon. They only ran it when it got dark outside and you couldn't see. And I will say this, my friend's parents were fairly "well off" compared to the average person there and that was a huge, expensive luxury that generator they own that the average folk there would never be able to afford. And it wasn't very stable, there was constantly short little power surges lasting from a second to a couple minutes, which would make playing a video game or watching TV or a DVD/Blu-Ray just about impossible.
Their wall outlets were a combination of the US and Europe style outlets, meaning you could plug either a US electronic or European electronic device into them, which was pretty neat. We went into a small little electronic store in downtown Monrovia, they just had a combination of random electronics imported from both Europe and the USA. I saw a cheapy Philips dvd player that would cost you like $20-30 in the USA, they had it priced at $90. The stuff they had was astronomically expensive, which i'm sure is because of how expensive it is to import stuff there.
I can say this, in an extremely poor third world country like Liberia, everything you take for granted in a place like the USA, a lot of the people just simply don't have these things, or they're quite scarce and/or expensive.
I can understand electronics being expensive over there. The Liberian dollar is only worth USD$.0065. That is sixty-five ten-thousandths of a US cent in value compared to the US dollar. No wonder it is expensive. Unfortunately. Thanks for letting me share.
