Nou te rive!

September 16, 2013

No new photos but we are here!

Our trip went without a hitch with Emile picking us up at the airport and taking us to change money, check out “Star 2000,” a grocery/housewares (and wine and liquor) store in Port-au-Prince. Many things, e.g plastic bags, plastic containers, were the same price as in NC. Others were very expensive.

Changing money was pretty interesting. We went to a gas station near the airport, and Emile passed our American cash out the window. In return, we received well-worn gourdes.

Richard, our guard, and Yvette, our cook, greeted us warmly and have already begun helping us with our Kreyol.

Summary – we have GOBS (anpil bagay) to learn.
