    ... control of Haiti until 1934. Back to the hotel: during the American Occupation, it was used as a US military hospital. After the occupation it was leased to a Swedish sea captain, named Oloffson who turned it into a hotel. It changed management several times and was a very trendy spot for writers, artists and beautiful people in the 50s and 60s. Graham Greene stayed there often and set one of his novels in the hotel.

    The first thing you learn to be thankful for is electricity. Public power, consistent, non-stop, electricity. Public power in Haiti does exist, but it is consistently, inconsistent. So inconsistent that I'm not sure it ever actually was on while we were there. The team house & orphanage had generators. The team house generator charged an inverter system.
