Reiser Relief Trip to Haiti: Day 1

Our first day! We spent most of it traveling, so we didn’t get a chance to see much of Haiti except for when we were coming in for our landing and on our short drive on our “tap tap” from the airport to the house. As we were landing, I was struck by how beautiful the city looked from the air. Largely surrounded by mountains, it was hard to believe there could be so much poverty in such a beautiful setting. But reality set in after we left the airport and saw villages of tin shanties, dirt roads covered with litter, and signs of poverty in every direction we looked. The Haitian people we have met so far are friendly and accommodating, and we are blessed to be staying in a guesthouse with delicious food and air conditioned bedrooms...
