Haiti

Everything Falls into Place

Oh this crazy world I find myself in. Even here it seems it not what you know but who you know. After heading out to a party on Friday, we met back up with friends from the night before Saturday morning and drove out through the maze of backstreets that make up Port-au-Prince, bound for the beach house of the bar owner. Three hours of driving, first out of the city, then along the coast, the up and over the mountains of Haiti’s southern peninsula, and we were in Jacmel and at a lovely beachside bungalow. Perfect for someone looking for a bit of downtime after the experience of bouncing from disaster response to disaster response all summer, we spent the weekend lazing and drinking and chatting and BBQing, all with a fantastic Caribbean sea view behind it. I also found a job! The bar owner is looking for people to help with training, managing and serving. Check, check and check. I start on Wednesday. If anyone is in country, send me a message and stop by for a beer!
