We left the compound around 10 o’clock AM, and headed up the streets of Anse-a-Gallets toward our destination. It took two pickup trucks and a four wheeler to carry 120 banana plants, 9 people, and 3 large boxes of Haitian Bibles and health books. Our journey took about 2 hours to get to La Torre, which is one of the larger villiages up in the mountain, then other half hour to get to Terre Sel. The village of Terre Sel is a gorgeous one. It has vibrant red dirt, big mango trees everywhere, and a very curious population. Once we arrived at the small church building where everyone was gathering to see what “blan” were up to; my dad and the CHE workers began to explain our purpose there. They explained to the people that we had brought banana plants and books for some of the families who were part of the CHE program. The Bibles and health books were taken to the pastor’s house for him to distribute, while the bananas were divided into groups of 10 or 15.
Pretty much just another Thursday in Haiti.
