The country of Liberia is celebrating national pavilion day on Monday in Shanghai.
Liberia is known for its large amount of rainfall. So naturally, Liberia Pavilion is using water as the key element to present a nation with a favorable geographical location, and beautiful natural environment and ingenious people.
One of the oldest republics on the African continent, Liberia is a small country with a population of less than 3-and-a-half million. The history of Liberia is unique among African nations. It's the only country that has not been colonized by a Western country in the 19th century.
Unlike many other African countries, Liberia is endowed with ample precipitation. Its yearly rainfall volumes could measure up to five-thousand millimeters, a number that earns Liberia a reputation as the world most rainy region.
