There and There
Now I'm back home, happy, safe and sound. Traveling in Haiti can be a little unpredictable. The day after flying into Cap-Haitian a local airline's plane crashed and burned trying to land there. The next day we came across a guy just hit and killed in the road. The day after that I saw a teenager get really banged up rolling down the road after falling off a truck, and the following day we ran over a dog - one of the few I've seen in Haiti wearing a collar. (I wasn't driving).
Scarier than traveling in Haiti is the carbon footprint I'm racking up. My round trip flight from Port-au-Prince to Paris produced 5.81 metric tons of CO2. Sorry, Bangladesh.
