Top 7 Things to do in Freetown in June 2024

Happy new month!

I bet it is quite happy for some or most Fretownians and Sierra Leoneans as a whole with the internet being restored on Saturday afternoon. Thankfully digital democracy was not under attack this past weekend and we genuinely experienced a disruption along other coastal countries due to the fiber optic cut in Dakar.

Aaahhh...we live to see another day online in short.

And, you get to read another #Top7 things!

So, here you go:

1.) Catch up with the Hash House Harriers 🏃🏾

The Leone Hash House Harriers or LH3 describe themselves as a "drinking club with a running problem".
