Our Arrival in Haiti Six Months Post-Quake

Tom and Carol via text message:

We arrived and made a successful rendezvous with Dr. Dennison (the dean of the Haitian dental school) and Duplan at the Port au Prince airport. The streets of Port au Prince are hot and dry with fewer people than I remember before the quake.

Cement blocks are stacked along the roadsides with many men shoveling piles of rubble to the other side of the road. Attempts at rebuilding are slowed to a snail's pace due to the oppressive heat.

It was great to see Nadia and Gaetan in the home they are rebuilding. Gaetan barely cried when his godmother gave him his six month old shots!
