Bienvenue a Ayiti!

Once we left New York, we made it here without a hitch.  Approaching Haiti in the plane, we were reminded of Hawaii - azure sea to the West and mountains to the East.  We disembarked and immediately felt the humidity, even though we were in the airport.  Immigration was a breeze, and we were serenaded as we waited our turn by a drummer and accordionist playing a one-bar song, on repeat.
