We flew into Port au Prince on Saturday morning. We had to go to another terminal to catch our connecting flight to Cap Haitian. We jumped in the back of a pickup truck and took a 5 minute car ride. We went back through security, which seemed like a joke. We don't think the metal detectors or x-ray machines even worked.
We boarded a 15 seat turbo-prop.
We flew low over the mountains to the other side of the island.
The plane would jump around and fish tail every time we went through a cloud.
We landed in Cap Haitian and found dogs and people walking around on the runway. We got picked up by Edy, our translator and driver, and Dr. Charles, a Haitian Dentist. We stayed at the Hotel Du Roi Christoph, the old Governor's mansion. The Hotel was gated and had private security. It had a pool, a couple bars, multiple lounge areas, and good water and food. The local beer is Prestige and of course there is Haitian Rum. The weather was perfect. Not too humid and about 80s during the day and 70s at night.

Being within and outside the gates was like night and day. Once you walked outside of the gates, it was a whole other world...
