Greetings from Cap-Haitien - finally
It only happens when you are packed and anxious to go. The scheduled flight was first delayed, then cancelled then rescheduled 3 times. I did arrive in Providenciales Wednesday then over to Haiti Thursday. Fourth time was the charm. Almost a week delayed but Mother Nature was calling the shots and setting the schedule.
At the Cap airport, Auguste our director of education, was allowed into the arrival area because I was in a wheel chair, due to my new friend the mosquito born virus Chikungunya. While in Canada I was an oddity, the only person with this nasty problem. I noticed Auguste having difficulty with my suitcase, probably because I have the same difficulty.
When we got to our vehicle, I noticed the problem he had with the keys to the truck. When questioned, he told me that he too had the virus. As did Joceline, our cook and Lusnot our Cap-Haitien coordinator. At a time when our energies are directed to getting our young people ready for school and paying registration fees, we have become both clinic and dispensing pharmacy. All of Joceline's 7 children are infected, Auguste's mother and sisters and Lusnot's cousins.
