Settling In and New Adventures

1 Comment

There is a lot to learn about Haitian culture! Obviously we are enjoying the warm weather, but we are also learning to enjoy the area and new culture we find ourselves planted in. We enjoyed a trip to the foothills for some hiking/climbing to reach a series of natural pools where we swam. We also enjoyed a Sunday afternoon trip to Port Salut to eat on the beach and swim.

The Haitians and local missionaries are very friendly and helpful with all our questions! We constantly have to convert money and figure out the proper price of things in their barter system. We have vendors coming to our door to sell anything from bananas to rocking chairs. We have to communicate with our “house help” while our Creole is very limited at this point! The internet is very frustrating, but we will eventually get used to how things work and make adjustments. Patience!
