Haiti

.. .and wanting respond to the news of the terrible earthquake.  I have never been to Haiti, but have been to Puerto Plata, just over the border in Dominican Republic, where the people I met were kind and friendly and also very poor.  The news is full of images of a devastated people searching for their lost relatives and trying to dig people and bodies out from under the rubble and ruined homes and lives.   Snowy Sussex seems like a different planet, but actually we are less than 9 hours by plane, the same time it would take to drive back to Edinburgh.
