gettin' soaked by Gustave
Tropical Storm Gustave seems to have just ended. It's been raining with varying degrees of intensity for the past 48+ hours. Even though Gwo Jan isn't close enough to the coast to suffer much damage from siklon yo (tropical storms/hurricanes), there are still heavy winds here and lots and lots of rain. We've learned that when it rains hard in Haiti, all activity ceases. No one goes to work, banks close, parliament shuts down. Our host families have been in their pajamas since Monday afternoon and we've been entertaining ourselves with multiple games of Scrabble.
