Bienvenue Haiti

No photos yet uploaded as we have just arrived in Cap Haitian after a looong day. Photos of course to follow. We are all however safe and sound. Highlights of the day. 1) lost 3 bags on Air Canada. Thankfully nothing we can't live without. Highlight 2. Angela Noble charmed the pilot of CaribeAir to allow her to sit in the co-pilot seat. Unfortunately she did not get the chance to actually take the controls but they did offer her that opportunity on the return leg.

We are spending the night at the Roi Christophe Hotel and on to visit Konbit Sante in the morning while we wait for the remainder of our bags to catuch up with us. This is a beautiful hotel and gardens that I would recommend if you ever find yourself in Cap. Not at all indicative of what is to come from our more rustic final destination.

We are all safe and sound. We have linked up with our local contacts Mr. Big, Joe, Julex and Gessner and all is well.

We will upload some photos tomorrow before we head out and again leave the world of the web for a few days.
