The people of Haiti speak French well Creole to be exact so hence the title in French!
This is my first time to Haiti and different than what I was expecting.
The people are amazing especially our country staff they never cease to amaze me in their enthusiasm and their love for not only us but most importantly the kids in their country.
Today we met up with Hawk Nelson at an orphanage they were doing work at called Hands and Feet. I have heard about them for sometime and the work they are doing is amazing!! After we left the orphanage Dan ( bass player for Hawk Nelson) and his wife and our group got to hang out with his sponsor kid all day! He loved his Hawk Nelson gear and especially the sunglasses. He might be 8 but he knows cool.
Tomorrow we will visit our country office, a project and then the airport to fly home.
Random Tidbits of the trip thus far. . .
- We are staying in Port Au Prince at the El Rancho ( but its not a ranch) They do however have wild game on the property aka the BIGGEST RATS EVER!!! We did see a Cat that we assumed is supposed to take care of the Rats, but the problem is that the Rats are the size of the Cats. hmm??
- We drove a roller coaster today. No really it was a ride maybe not a thrill ride but a ride. Having traveled to various countries with various roads and various hills I can say that this one is at the top of the list for “rides to be remembered. . .because I am alive” and did I mention we did it twice (there and back!)
- I have had croque masseur two nights in a row. ahhhh the French!
- The taxis here are called “Tap-Tap” and they are a work of art. You never know who’s picture (Here it’s a famous soccer player) on the back, but I am still on the lookout for Michael Jackson.
- Back to the “Tap Tap” the miss out of the journey back to the hotel. Opposite side of the road the Chuck Norris “Tap Tap” flew by. Yes, the CHUCK NORRIS TAP TAP
