Trip to Mirebalais

Troy went in search of some documents in Mirebalais yesterday. There was a major road construction project going on. It was encouraging and rare to see such a large undertaking and developing infrastructure. After the hurricanes and tropical storms of this season people are left finding alternate ways across the river. The bridge is destroyed. Haitians are amazingly resourceful, even when faced with insurmountable obstacles they find a way to get through it. Most of these make-shift "boats" were constructed after the storms.

The city of Mirabelais is divided into two parts. If you need to get to the other side by vehicle you'd have to drive an extra two hours out of the way.

How is your commute looking today?
