Staying on in Port-au-Prince, Haiti!

Submitted by eagle on Wed, 01/08/2020 - 12:30

Caribbean accents are difficult for me to understand, in Spanish or French or English.

Found another hotel.

This one has AC!

(Often not functioning.)

Still faily wifi.

Food and drink in Haiti are less expensive and more tasty than in many other places.

Rent is more expensive and less effective than in many other places.

I probably would never have guessed that one day I would be so upset at the Haitian banks!

Payment from work came later than usual. I was already asleep.

Woke up in the night, noticed it. Computer was dead.


Going to see about rent, work!

Saying "hi" in French ("bonjour") is like giving a kiss, because of the mouth shapes.

Whenever I see a white person in Haiti, it turns out to be a mannequin.

Because of how late the money came in, the bank still having issues, and various other problems, I'm still without enough cash for the hotel room for tonight. The manager let me stay.

Instead of seeing the area, I feel like I'm dealing with bank frustrations. Maybe that IS seeing the area.

I'm now planning more seriously to leave Haiti this upcoming week.

It's an interesting country. So far I consider it worth visiting.

However, I feel like I've seen about as much as I want of the culture and geography.

Also, it's quite difficult to get around. It's difficult even to stay still.

So, I'm thinking of leaving around Monday.

We'll see!

Port-au-Prince, Haiti!
