Life in Haiti

From October 13, 2022

Life in Haiti is depressing. All joy we could squeeze out of a day just a few months ago has vanished. All you see are sad, tired, fed-up faces. The people are worn down by stress and fear. Yesterday, Steph and I zipped down to the little local supermarket at the bottom of the hill. When we reached the main street (Delmas, 33) we saw very few cars. Not because the streets were blocked but because no one had gas to operate their cars.

comes to about $280. I gave the money to Michel and he set out to get the gas. I expressed to
Gabens my concern about the need for diesel fuel.
