Back from the Caribbean - and Rooting for Haiti on 07/09/2012 14:06:44 MDT Print View

I just came back from a two-month, 'island hopping' trip to the Caribbean. While I enjoyed all the islands I visited, Haiti now has a special place in my heart.

Underdog syndrome, perhaps? But poor Haiti -- pretty much every time it gets reported in our media, it's the earthquake, poverty, environmental degradation...

Yes, Haiti is poor, but that isn't the country's only aspect. Haiti has its charms too. I just came back from a 2-month trip to the Caribbean islands, including Haiti, and I wish more people would visit and get to know that poor, but gentle and lovely country!

Thanks for sharing, Ben. Nice to live vicariously through your travels.

Edit: the pictures of the ruins left in Haiti were quite sobering.
