We Must Be In Haiti

We departed Ft Lauderdale on a new airline, Spirit Airlines, and arrived in Port-au-Prince around 1:00 PM We were going to meet Josh & Natalie Unger, from the St. Louis, MO area, who were arriving at 3:45 PM, so we thought we’d take advantage of the time and open a checking account at one of the local banks. I have been meaning to do this for some time so we can transfer money from the States more easily. It took about an hour and forty minutes and ended up being only a savings account instead of checking. Because we had to get back to the airport, we didn’t have time to deposit the money in the account. Just another day in Haiti!

We picked up Josh and Natalie (pictured at right) about 5:00 PM (naturally the plane was late but once again, that’s Haiti). We arrived at CSI around 6:00 PM, just in time to catch dinner.
