Cap Trip

Here are a few of my favorite photos from last weekend's trip to Cap Haitien. It was a great trip - I've enjoyed seeing more of this tiny country that seems so big at times. Cap didn't differ from Port au Prince as much as I thought it would - it was still very dirty and dusty and crowded in the city. One big difference I noticed outside of town - a definite absence of security measures around homes and businesses. I didn't see any razor wire, broken glass atop walls, or armed guards like I'm used to.

The Citadel was amazing - it was hard for it to live up to my expectations since I've read about it and wanted to see it for so long - but it was a great experience. I was excited to go there because of it's history and place in Haiti's interesting story.

I'll post more (at least photos) in the coming days if the internet cooperates.
