There Is No Place Like Haiti

  • Today was their last day in Léogâne.
  • They went to Jacmel today and hiked up a trail to a waterfall. Everybody was trying to decided if they were going to swim and Laura was the first one to jump in.
  • Laura and another girl were the only girls that jumped off the cliff.
  • They went to the church in Jacmel.
  • They saw a lot of people selling stuff along the road.
  • On the way back it was very foggy.
  • They were all crammed in the back of a pickup truck. Laura was standing up so she could dry off.
  • When they got back everyone decided to stay in the church because the Haitians were asking for all their stuff. Everybody is going to leave most of their stuff behind.
  • Tomorrow everyone is leaving the church. Laura is hopeful that everyone will be able to have a tent.
  • Laura is giving all of her stuff to a young man that lost his entire family. She put his name on all her stuff.
  • There were naked people bathing in the river.
  • Laura said Dustin Heslop and Brian Rogers are very funny.
  • Laura was impressed with John Robinson. He is 74 years old and kept up with everybody.
  • They are going to wake up at 5:00am and the bus is supposed to leave at 5:30am.
  • Laura said this trip has been an amazing experience. She wants to go back some time. She feels bad for the Haitians. Even with the diarreah and the scabies it was totally worth it. It has been a lot of work but it has been very rewarding.
  • There is no place like Haiti. She has really grown to love the people
  • She wants me and to go with her next time.
