Day 1 - Travel Day

Today was a rather uneventful day for the most part. We arrived at the airport around 4 in the morning full of energy and ready to go! Not really, we were all pretty tired, but it was exciting to start our trip. This is the first time that we, Landon and Ryan, have gone to Haiti. The plane ride had a little turbulence, but overall it wasn’t too bad. When we were preparing to land at the Haitian airport, we looked down over the country and saw the beautiful mountains and the rolling ocean. Haiti seemed like a vacation spot from above. As soon as we landed, we saw just how wrong we were. The airport was nothing like the Atlanta airport. It was hot and steamy and the escalators were rickety. We loaded up onto the tap tap with some unwanted help from the locals. The tap tap itself was crazy and the roads had zero rhyme or reason to them. We arrived at the guest house eventually. We had a great dinner, enjoyed the view from the house and played games until night. We also met some friendly neighbor goats who were very entertaining. We are all running on an hour and a half of sleep and we will be early to bed tonight. Thank you for your prayers and support.
