Under a Haitian Moon
Fok ou kon kote ou soti pou ou konnen kote ou prale.
You must know where you come from to know where you’re going.
Bonjou, zanmi m’!
Greetings from 18.5 degrees N latitude! (You can take the geography teacher out of the classroom…) The rainy season has not yet arrived, meaning virtually every day has been 90 and sunny so far this spring. When it hasn’t been 90 and sunny, it’s been 80 and a little overcast, which suits us just fine, thankyouverymuch. It has rained a few times (once recently like cats and dogs causing localized flooding in front of the Embassy – and in the restaurant where we were eating), but generally we’ve had very pleasant weather since our arrival. If it stays like this for the next two years, I would be ok with that. Ah, if wishing only made it so.
