The Carlsbad of Haiti- Sunday, June 24
So, in Haiti Sunday is basically the only "day off". Today, after mass, we went to the beach in Port Salut. It was Johnny (our driver), Dan, Dr. Blood and his son Daniel (visitors- Daniel is here for a month to fix things- he is awesome), Dr. Jacob (our clinic doctor) and his wife Gerarde (she is a nurse), and myself.
It took about an hour to get there. Driving through Port Salut really reminded me of Carlsbad, CA. The city was so cute and quiet and clean. There are little shops lining the cobblestone drive. Very picturesque.
The beach was basically deserted, the sand was white and smooth, and the water was beautiful. Hopefully we will be taking frequent trips here on our day off!
Gerarde and myself. I am resting in a hammock at the restaurant after laying out on the beach and swimming in the ocean.
This is a shot of the sign for the restaurant we ate at. Take a look at the beautiful beach in the background. It was a lovely Sunday.
