The Surreal Life

Picture this:

A company of Mongolian UN Peace Keepers frolicking in the shallow waters of an idyllic beach on the southern tip of the Freetown peninsula.

Half naked soldiers clamoring to have their pictures taken with yours truly, while trying not to go too deep into the water, because they can't swim. In fact, they've been ordered not to swim.

All while being protected by fully uniformed and armed soldiers who are standing in the hot sun, patrolling the perimeter, forced to watch as their friends have the time of their lives.
