Medical teams mill about this morning as we get ready to go to the airport. As we’re trying to wrangle a ride on anything with wings headed north and west, they’ll be going out to hospitals, clinics, tent cities and dusty corners of the city. Even as they left, one of their drivers smashed his hand in the heavy metal gate that guards the compound. Several guys jumped out, stitched him up, and went on with life.
It is 8:39am Haiti time and I’m not totally sure we’ll get out today, but we’ll do our best. It should be an adventure. Hopefully in the next day or so I’ll be able to synthesize my thoughts on the trip. I’ve learned a lot…shed a few opinions and strengthened others. Most of all, I’ve fallen in love with Haiti in a way I couldn’t have imagined.
If you don’t hear any more from me today, it’s a good sign I’ll be eating Chinese food in a hotel tonight. Otherwise, I’ve stashed my organic pop tarts and expansive supply of dried fruit here at the camp.
