  1. Great job on explaining about Freetown. At the end of where you talked about Freetown football is a very well known and played sport there I liked how you added that. I also like that you mentioned the stadium being the largest in Sierra Leone and how they had 2 successful teams and when they play each other it is one of the biggest events in Freetown I found that very interesting.
