Sorry All, Haiti has this strange effect on me. It is an all-encompassing place. There is always so much going on, so much work to do, so much fun to be had that blog-writing has definitely taken a back seat since I arrived. Well, not even taken a seat really!
I have been planning and teaching an advanced English course to some of our staff and volunteers, preparing reports on natural disasters around the world for All Hands and spending the weekends in Port-au-Prince working in a bar, bringing in some cash so that I can keep volunteering. Today I’ll be accompanying two volunteers to the local clinic with minor complaints, calling the Canadian Embassy about a lost passport and working on this week’s English classes. In other news, we discovered a new bar last night, mere meters from base, with a large selection of flavoured moonshine – and for only 25p per eyelash melting shot. As they say here in Haiti, “Oh-oh!” (emphasis on the second ‘oh’ and with a higher pitch).
