For a fun read – Top Ten Things to Know Before Visiting Haiti.
What to bring:
- Smart phone! You spend so much time in traffic and waiting. It is just so helpful. Make sure it has GPS capability. This was a god-send for me just traveling everyday as it’s easy to get lost or turned around in Port Au Prince.
What not to bring:
- Lose the Clothes! It gets incredibly hot (especially as a Minnesotan) we didn’t realize how hot it was and how we brought down the **wrong type** of clothes. For example, Melissa thought that Capri’s would be fine here… but they are still way to hot to wear. They only really work in Dec/Jan but for the other 10 months of the year they don’t!
