Byenveni a la Republique d'Ayiti - The first black republic in modern world history.
About this blog
It is not a place for luxury resort travel. It is a place for understanding your 'neighbor.' Getting to know parts of the world often seen on news headlines - where poverty, violence, and government instability intimidate anyone going there for any reason.
We - a group of friends reunited for a short visit, were fully escorted and updated on locations of moderately safe zones, in order to ensure our security. We were also fortunate to have traveled back through mountains to Port-au-prince, just hours before the tropical storm Noel ran that same path.
We were able to get to know locals who taught us how to smile despite hardships...well...some of them!... My thanks to Kristina for giving us the opportunity to visit her at work there!
