the baby boomers who have never gone back make you feel al lthe negatively. yet you have all these foreigners who go all the time and enjoy the country my parents are from.

but once i was made to feel comfortable speaking my choppy creole at the airport i felt better

I ask because I have extended family in Port-Au-Prince and I've been anxious to take a trip back (I haven't been in over 3 decades), so I'm curious as to how that worked.

Also....do you speak Kreyol or French? If either or neither, how easy was the communications, etc.

a friend and a non profit whose founders i know both decided to extend an invite to stay with the non profit in december. They have a guest house in Delmas, Port - au prince for volunteers and others. so it made sense with room and board and meals being included for a small fee.

So we were there then traveled to the country in St. Louis du Sud.

I also had a photo exhibition that was going up in Petionville which is up unti lthe 29th
