Going back to the Dominican Republic from Haiti was a shock! The two countries are side by side but opposite as quality of life and behaviour.
A day walking around Port au Prince, visiting the cathedral, the marché de fer, the voodoo art gallery, and resting our dirty feet at the Oloffson, a trademark of the town.
The long journey from Port Salut to Port-au-Prince: 14 hours to drive 219 kilometers. What a nightmare going around in Haiti is!
An ordinary day in Port Salut, trying to understand how people live in Haiti.
Not everyone is poor and in difficulty in Haiti, some people live a happy and wealthy life, in particular in Port Salut.
Backpacking in Haiti is much more complicated and tiring than what I thought. Long waits, closed hotels, crazy rides.
First day in Haiti, in particular in Jacmel, a town on the Southern coast. It’s not easy.
So it’s set, we are going to Haiti from the Dominican Republic, on a boat that will take us with hundreds of others to Marigold, and from there to Jacmel.
We moved from Los Patos to Pedernales, close to the border, to get some information on traveling to Haiti, as it is so difficult to fetch information here.
I’m always scared before I go on a new trip, because I don’t know what to expect and home is so welcoming and comforting…
