In July before coming back to the States I had the opportunity to spend a few days in Port au Prince with friends. Driving from the airport through the city to Pétionville the first thing I noticed was a garbage truck and people busy sweeping and picking up trash—the truck stood out to me because I’d never seen a garbage truck in Haiti before—the streets were not lined with garbage and it didn’t seem to be as chaotic as it was. I have always had hope for Haiti and now I see progress as well.
I was so surprised to see this truck that I didn’t even notice the glare on the windshield, but the driver did accommodate me by clearing off the dashboard.
There is still a lot going on in this very large city, but its not chaotic.
There are vendors on every corner.
Even though the streets are very busy there are no horns blowing and drivers cursing each other.
