Haiti has been making world news again. It always makes me sad to know that this usually only happens when things fall apart here.
So, what’s going on for us? For us specifically it’s business as usual. We’re about an hour and a half out of Port au Prince so things are quiet and normal. Not so much in other parts of the country. Yesterday, as you’ve probably already heard, there was rioting in Port au Prince and thousands of people descended on the Presidential Palace demanding the resignation of Rene Preval. I found a good article on CNN online – Haitian rioters storm presidential palace.
We’re just going to keep doing what we’re doing and be very careful. We’ve got friends in the US State Department and USAID so we can get pretty good updates about what’s really going on and a bit of an inside scoop on who’s doing what. I have a lot of thoughts and opinions about things, but don’t feel like writing about them unless you want to hear about it. If you do let me know in the comment section and I’ll let you know what I think.
