The ride down from Port-a-Prince yesterday was interesting. At least it was daylight. I've only come this way in the dark before. In Port-au-Prince, we hot stuck in a HUGE pothole, and a bunch of men lifted us out, --while all 11 of us where still in the van! Later on, the van with our luggage had a flat tire, and we drew a crowd while that was being changed, too.
When we arrived at Espwa yesterday afternoon, we quickly unpacked, and took a tour of the 125 acres and all that Espwa has to offer the residents. Then, we went to the village and saw the children. Always an amazing thing, they run to greet us, hang on, talk, and want to practice their English, if they know any.
We had pasta last night; it was delicious. We hung around for a while, had a wonderful sharing time of our first impressions, and hit the hay. It was good to have a fan in our room, as the room was still quite warm. The cool shower was good.
Haitian coffee is strong, and I've already had my 2 cups. Breakfast soon, so will report more later. It's good to be here.
